Jetman Yves Rossy soars over Rio de Janeiro
Swiss adventurer Yves "Jetman" Rossy has completed another dramatic stunt - flying full throttle above the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
A video has been released showing the Jetman preparing for the solo flight and then jumping out of a helicopter over the Rodrigo de Freitas Lake and circling over Rio in his jet suit.
The 51-year-old Swiss started developing the Jetman project in 1993, completing his first significant flight in 2008 by crossing the English Channel. In 2011, he flew alongside two Albatross jets over the Swiss Alps and rocketed across a portion of the western end of the Grand Canyon.
