- AWESOME! Swiss pilot Yves Rossy has completed a formation flight alongside two Albatross jets above the Swiss Alps. After 10 years of development and more than 15 prototypes, Rossy used a wing he’d created with four model jet engines to fly for five minutes and 40 seconds. He carried only an altimeter and a tiny throttle control.

In May 2008, the 52-year-old made his first official flight over the Swiss Alps in front of the media. Rossy crossed the English Channel in September 2008 by air and the event was broadcast live to 165 countries. It took him 13 minutes.
Since then, Rossy has flown alongside two Boeing Stearman biplanes carrying the Breitling Wingwalkers, circled a hot-air balloon and hurtled over the Grand Canyon.
