Yves Rossy, a.k.a. Jetman, completed a formation flight alongside two jet planes from the Breitling Jet Team.

The world`s first jet-powered man jumped off a helicopter with his rigid wing equipped with four jet engines. Adjusting his trajectory and altitude by his body movements alone, Rossy performed aerobatic figures above the Swiss Alps in the company of two L-39C Albatros planes from the Breitling Jet Team, the world`s largest professional civilian aerobatics team performing on jets.

This is not the first time Rossy was flying with planes. The Jetman has already flown alongside two Boeing Stearman biplanes carrying the Breitling Wingwalkers:
