Yves Rossy flies around Mount Fuji in a jet pack

Most people would climb uphill to take in the wonders of Japan's Mount Fuji, but Swiss adventurer Yves Rossy chose to strap on a jet pack and fly around it instead.

With a flight time of around 10 minutes, he circled the world heritage site nine times over the course of a week.
