JAPAN – A Swiss aviator flew around Japan’s highest mountain last week.

Yves "Jetman" Rossy jumped from a helicopter so he could get a great view of Japan's iconic and massive Mount Fuji. All he needed was his jet pack.

He zipped around at over 125 miles an hour and the flight only lasted between 6 and 13 minutes.

He popped his parachute to ensure a safe landing.

Jetman has also taken in the sights of the Grand Canyon and the English Channel.
