Yves “Jetman” Rossy, a Swiss aviator who operates jet-engine powered wings, flew around Japan’s highest and most revered mountain last week, Agence France-Press reports.
“It’s really impressive. It’s a perfect form, a huge mountain, a huge volcano, a presence that you can feel on ground and also in the air,” the 54-year-old former Swiss air force pilot said of the 12,388-foot mountain.
