OK, the vid aint quite as dramatic, but any skydiver can strap a wingsuit on, but there's only 1 jet pack like that in the world. He just does it with the usual swiss coolness

True, but that doesnt mean any ski diver could buzz that road like that at the end. My vote goes to the base jumping dudes.
