Swiss Jetman Rossy flies alongside fighter jets

Daredevil Jetman Rossy joins fighter jets over the Swiss Alps.

Swiss Jetman, Yves Rossy has another flight for the aviation history books. This time he synchronized to fly in formation with two Aero L-39C Fighting Jets, from the largest private aerobatics team, both sponsored by watchmaker Breitling. The world's first jet-powered man, jumped off a helicopter, flew some aerobatic figures before joining the two jets. To keep in formation with the Jetman, the two fighting jets had to reduce their speed to 220 km/h (137 mph), close to their stalling speed.
Rosssy is also known for having flown over the English channel, the Grand Canyon and flying a looping around a hot air balloon.
