Here’s video of a real Superman. Swiss daredevil Yves Rossy raced two jets over the Swiss Alps while wearing a jet suit. The 52-year-old pilot is known as “Jetman.” He dropped from a helicopter and traveled at 125 mph wearing a kerosene-powered wing that he designed himself. He flew alongside two L-39C Albatros jets from the Breitling Jet Team, the world's largest professional civilian aerobatics squad. Rossy has been flying over natural landmarks since 2008. He flew across the English Channel and the Grand Canyon. He had a slight mishap in 2009 when he tried to fly across the Straits of Gibraltar and fell into the sea. Rossy is a former fighter pilot and a commercial pilot. He once flew for Swissair.
