AMAZING: People in Jetpacks Fly Along Jumbo Jet [VIDEO]
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No – it’s Jetman! The adrenaline junkie who makes headlines by soaring above the clouds with nothing but a jetpack has done it again, flying with his protégé alongside an Emirates A380 airliner.
At first, the video seems like an advertisement for Emirates, with the A380 majestically flying over the Dubai skyline – but 20 seconds in, something out of the ordinary happens (and it’s enough to make anyone with a fear of heights turn away).
Swiss daredevil Yves Rossy – adoringly known by his fans as Jetman – and Vince Reffet unexpectedly drop down from above, and begin flying alongside the superjumbo.
It’s an impressive feat, but one that was carefully choreographed. The plane traveled at just 1,219 meters (4,000 feet), while the airliner and two men flew in two holding patterns. A film crew in a helicopter recorded the stunt from 304 meters (1,000 feet) above, Engadget reported.
