Jetman to tower***request Flyby *** Christ the Redeemer***
It doesn’t get any better than this! Breitling-sponsored Yves “Jetman” Rossy once again pushed the boundaries of aviation by completing a fabulous flight above the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Perpetuelle readers know that the Jetman is an airborne pioneer, the only man to fly with a rigid carbon-kevlar jetwing equipped with four jet engines. The jet engines propel the Swiss aviator at a speed of 125-185 mph (200-300 km/h), controlled by a simple hand-held throttle. To adjust his trajectory and his altitude, Rossy relies exclusively on maneuvering his body, shoulders and legs. The entire feat lasted 11 minutes 35 seconds in all — culminating in a landing on Copacabana Beach. Gotta love it! Check him out at www.jetman.com
