Link has video as well.

Adrenalin junkie Yves Rossy, a former military pilot and current Airbus commander for Swiss International Air Lines, was dropped from a plane at 2,438 metres (8,000ft). After unfolding his wing, Rossy soared through the Alps at 180mph (300km/h), putting on an aerobatic display for fans who had made the trip.

cool how the guy does it.

1. jumps out of plane with wing folded
2.deploys wing and fires jet
3. flys around for a bit
4. folds up the wing when the fuel is gone
5.parachutes to the ground

pretty slick. Possibly a g.i.joe movie thing though. definite could be.

Amazing and so smooth...

I like this one aswell:

Martin Lund Rasmussen

In case you are unfamiliar with Eddie Mush, he was the character in the movie "A Bronx Tale" who was a total jinx. He had a perfect track record of losing every bet he ever placed as well as jinxing everyone around him.
