Yves Rossy, also known as the Rocket Man, has successfully performed his daredevil flying stunt over the lake Geneva on Friday last week. The Swiss pilot became the first person to fly with a jet engine powered, self-built wing attached to him.

Yves Rossy achieved his feat by jumping off a hot air balloon at 7,800 feet high and successfully completed two loops at 200mph. His jet wings had four jet turbines and can be steered with body movements. Stats for Jet Pack Lake-Jumping Trending: Older & Warm
