At a recent Switzerland air show, 'Jet Man' Yves Rossy gave an incredible flying display, using a tailor-made jet pack (video below). The aviation enthusiast jumped from a helicopter and performed a series of aerial acrobatics above the Swiss Alps.

Rossy then joined two jet planes in a synchronized flight. To synchronize their flight paths the jets reduced their speed to 137 miles per hour, which put their engines at a point close to stalling. Rossy's previous aerial feats include flying the English Channel and looping the loop around a hot-air balloon.
