Rocket Man returns

Yves Rossy dons his jet-powered wings and does a first ever loop.

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.”
