Swiss pilot Yves "Jetman" Rossy has been wowing people around the world for years with his homemade quad-rocket jetpack and it never gets old. Rossy recently took the eight foot long carbon fiber wing for a quick (185MPH) spin around Japan's Mount Fuji. We don't imagine flying with a jetpack like Rossy's makes you feel like a bird, unless that bird is a peregrine falcon diving to catch its prey. Watch some of the footage Rossy captured below and listen to the daredevil try to explain the rush to people who will never experience it.
