Breitling: Yves Rossy “Jetman” Soars Over the Rio de Janeiro Skyline

Sponsored by Breitling, Yves Rossy continued to push the boundaries on aeronautical achievement by taking to the skies above Rio de Janeiro in his rigid carbon-kevlar jetwing equipped with four jet engines. Flying around the Corcovado, an array of camera angles capture “Jetman” as he treats the sky like his own personal playground as people on the ground gawk at him like he were pulled from the pages of their favorite superhero comic book. Featuring twists, flips and climbs that are performed as if he were born with a set of wings, the Swiss airman lands on Copacabana Beach as if this were just another day for him.
