Jetman roams the skies, cruises alongside B17 bomber (VIDEO)

Pretty much every little boys dreams of having a jetpack. Swiss adventurer, Yves Rossy – also known as “Jetman” – turned that dream into a reality when he created a fully functional jet-powered wing. The wing is powered by four attached Jet-Cat P200 jet engines modified from large kerosene-fueled model aircraft engines.

In this video Rossy soars alongside a B17 bomber.

Rossy has been so lucky as to have flown over the Alps at a top speed of 189 mph, performed acrobatic maneuvers, cruised through the Grand Canyon and more.

Dear Santa…
