Watch Two ‘Jetmen’ take to the skies alongside Emirates A380 passenger Aircraft
Who wouldn’t want to fly like a bird if they had wings right? watch this amazing video that shows two daredevils with carbon fiber jet wing flying alongside Emirates A380 airliner. The video was shot over the Palm Jumeira in Dubai in collaboration with Jetman Dubai and Emirates.
As crazy as the stunt may seem, it was actually staged with a clear planning and choreography at just 4000 ft, that is pretty high for flying human though. It is jaw-dropping to see Jetman Dubai pilots Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet flying alongside world’s largest passenger aircraft.
They certainly kept some distance between the airliner. The Emirates craft pumps out 70,000 pounds of thrust per engine with a max speed of 490 knots, that makes the wearable-wing’s 88 pounds and 170 knots nothing in comparison.
And it definitely took a third flying object, a helicopter to capture this once-in-lifetime moment. It kept a distance 1000 feet above the trio flying in a holding patterns. Watch the video below and drop your thoughts in the comment box.
