Emirates Releases Insane Footage Of Two Men With Jet Packs Racing Alongside An A-380 Over Dubai

Say hello to daredevils who go by the name of Jetman Dubai and make use of jet-powered wings for flying in the sky. Emirates has released a video of these daredevils flying alongside the Airbus A-380 – the world’s largest commercial airplane in the world. You need to see the video to believe it folks!

It’s a 100-second long video that has been shot over Dubai and took three months in the making at least. At any given time, there were four other aircraft apart from the Jetman team in the sky.

The Airbus A-380 is capable of holding up to 853 passengers, sports a 261-ft wingspan and can travel up to 8,200 nm from Dallas, Texas to Sydney, Australia without refueling.

It has four engines and is a double-deck airplane.

Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet, the Jetman team, began the flight by jumping from a helicopter.

Looking at it from the perspective of a Jetman.

“We will be mosquitoes flying with an eagle or condor,” Rossy said in a behind the scenes video.

The team flew over the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
