Rocketeer Yves Rossy Does Loops with His Jetpack


(Video Link)


We've previously covered the increasingly daring stunts of jetpack pilot Yves Rossy. Last Friday, he performed loops in the air:

The former fighter pilot and extreme sports enthusiast, 51, described himself as "very happy and satisfied" with the stunt and said he now hopes to fly his custom-made jet pack through the Grand Canyon.

Rossy performed his aerial display at an altitude of 7,874ft (2,400m) after jumping from a replica of the Breitling Orbiter, the first hot air balloon to complete a continuous around-the-world flight.

He said on his website: "The flight went well, despite a little problem when starting my engines. I was able to do my two loopings and I am very happy."
