Swiss aviator Yves Rossy, whose jet-engine powered wings have taken him over some of the world’s most awe-inspiring places, has added another – the 12,388-foot-tall Mount Fuji.

Strapped to wings and jet engines, Rossy, known as Jetman, zipped around the skies of Japan’s highest peak. Rossy dropped from a helicopter and deployed the jet-powered carbon-kevlar “Jetwing” and uses his body to steer as he flew near Mount Fuji nine times between October 28 and November 3.
