A Swiss pilot who flies in a carbon-Kevlar jetwing marked his first public flights in the United States this summer by soaring with a B17 bomber.
Yves Rossy, who calls himself "Jetman," will make appearances all week at the Experimental Aircraft Association's AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
In September, he'll fly during the Reno Air Races in Nevada.
Jetman is able to travel at 190 miles per hour and go up as high as 12,000 feet. His first jet suit could fly for only 10 minutes, but the time has increased with improvements. A new suit in development will let Rossy take off from the ground instead of getting dropped from high in the air.
The Telegraph published a video of Rossy's flight with the B17 bomber:
