Watch Jetpack-Wearing Daredevils Soar Alongside a Jumbo Jet
Well, that’s one way to travel in style. The video above, released by action sports tourism company X Dubai, shows two daredevils using jetpacks to zoom alongside an Emirates Airlines Airbus A380. The thrill-seekers in the video are none other than Yves Rossy, a.k.a. “Jetman,” and his protégé Vince Reffet. This isn't the first jetpack stunt Rossy has pulled; the French daredevil is best known for using his personal jet wing to soar over locales like Rio de Janeiro and the Grand Canyon at speeds reaching 190 mph.
His latest flight above the Dubai skyline was the result of three months of careful planning between Emirates and the Jetman Dubai teams. Watch the work that went into this aerial showcase in the video below.
