Yves Rossy, better known as Jetman, was up to his old tricks again a few days back when he leapt off a hot air balloon and ignited his jetpack, which sent him climbing up to 2400 meters (7874 ft) before retuning to circle around the balloon twice. He would eventually pull the ripcord on his parachute and drift gently to the ground, but not before he did his best superman imitation, flying through the air like a bird. A really, really fast, jet-powered bird. Check out the video below to see what I mean. Looks like a blast!
