Watch Two Men Fly Jet Packs Over Dubai [VIDEO]
In an extreme marketing move, Emirates Airlines and XDubai recruited 'Jetman' Yves Rossy and his thrill-seeking apprentice Vince Reffet to fly winged jet packs over Dubai. In the video below, the two experienced pilots fly alongside a 'superjumbo jet' known as the Emirates A380 - the world's largest passenger aircraft.
According to the Jetman website, the wing is made of kevlar and has four engines that can reach maximum speeds of 195 mph. The packs weigh around 90 lbs.
Although the feat looks like it was easy to pull off, the pilots explain that it took meticulous and painstaking planning to preform the stunt as safely as possible.
The video was shot by four small aircraft on October 13, at an altitude of 4,000 feet.
If you've ever wanted to fly like a bird, this video may make you incredibly jealous.
