Two Daredevils With Jetpacks Chase An Emirates A380 Over Dubai

How’s this for an average Friday? Emirates have released incredible footage of two daredevils on jetpacks taking to the skies of Dubai to chase an Emirates jet in an ‘unprecedented jet formation’.

The two jetpack-clad men are Yves ‘Jetman’ Rossy and Vince Reffet, both experienced pilots who in the video can be seen flying alongside the largest passenger aircraft in the world, the Emirates A380 at a top speed of 170 knots.

The footage was shot from a helicopter flying 1,500 ft above, making it look much easier than it was. “While the formation flight looked effortless on film, painstaking planning and meticulous collaboration with an intense focus on safety drove all efforts”.

Nicely done.
