Jetman and his buddies are back. Yves Rossy, the man who decided that you don’t need much more than a tiny wing and a jetpack to fly, has teamed up with pilots Vincent Reffet and Fred Fugen in south of France for another absolutely insane and beautiful stunt.
This time, the three pilots are flying in formation with Patrouille de France’s Alphajets, one of the best precision aerobatics team in the world.
According to the press release, the jetpack-equipped men fly “just a few meters” from the airplanes — not an easy task when you control the jetpack with body movements alone.
Yves Rossy has pulled several stunts like this before. Last year, he flew alongside an Airbus A380 in Dubai and circled the world’s tallest building, that city’s Burj Khalifa.
The new video is available in glorious 4K resolution, so be sure to choose that one if you have a monitor that supports it.
