Fuji flight for 'Jetman'

A former Swiss pilot recently found a brand new and rather uplifting way of visiting Japan’s iconic Mount Fuji.

Yves ‘Jetman’ Rossy strapped a four-engined jetpack to his wingsuit and took off on his special sightseeing tour.

Averaging around 200 kilometres per hour, with peak speeds of 300 kilometres per hour the ‘Jetman’ reportedly circled the Mountain nine times.

Rossy has also flown over other landmarks such as the United States’ Grand Canyon and the English Channel but said that Fuji was its own experience.

“I came from behind the clouds so Mount Fuji was hidden, and when I came like that it was like wow! Like this window did open, and I was here.

“That’s a fantastic privilege to be a little mosquito flying in front of that big mountain.”
