Jetman flies over Mount Fuji: Yves Rossy soars ...
Subscribe to ITN News: http://bit.ly/itnytsub Yves Rossy, the Swiss ex-pilot known as Jetman, has flown over Mount Fuji using his jet-powered wings. "You feel that you have pressure everywhere, and that's the magic moment. Because full thrust like that, you are aerodynamic and it's like a big hand on your back and yes! It holds. And you fly," Rossy said. Averaging around 200 kilometres per hour, he flew a total of nine times around the mountain as the 2metre-wide wings and their 4 jet engines only allow a flight time of up to 13 minutes. This flight isn't the first for Rossy, who has flown over other landmarks such as the Grand Canyon and the English Channel. Report by Sophie Foster.
