Jetman “Yves Rossy” Breathtaking Fly Over The Swiss Alps

Man has dreamt of flying since the rise of civilization, starting from Abbas Ibn Firnas of Andalucia  (810–887 A.D.), who attempted flying using a pair of wings up till the American Wright Brothers who invented a glider biplane in the end of the 19th century. Today this has been made possible to do individually; Swiss pilot Yves Rossy is filmed in the following video soaring the skies over the Swiss alps appearing to be fully in-control over his Jet, he’s considered to be the first man to have the performances of an airplane with only his body movements to steer, an imagination coming to life really.

The ultimate dream of flight – soaring through the air, with total freedom in all three dimensions, not within a heavy and complicated machine but with only one’s body and sensations – a dream everybody had at least once in their life.

JETMAN made it real.
