Swiss daredevil Yves Rossy, known as the Jetman, built a 250 pound four-engine carbon-Kevlar jet wing and flew it around Japan's Mount Fuji. Rossy aim was to honor the recognition of Mount Fuji as a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Dropped upside down from a helicopter, Rossy completed nine 10-minute flights at 190mph, climbing to 12,000ft over an average 9.3 miles.
He used only his body to steer before opening his parachute and landing safely.
"It’s a fantastic privilege to be a mosquito flying in front of that mountain,” Said Rossy, adding that Mt Fuji was beautiful “in its presence and form."
