It’s a bird, it’s a plane… no… it’s flying men and an A380! This video is trending right now, and shows two men in jetpacks flying alongside an enormous Emirates A380 in a carefully programmed stunt.

The two men from Jetman Dubai,Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet are considered “pilots” of their craft, and were a part of the rather awesome performance flying right alongside the A380 at 4,000 feet above Dubai. They were wearing jet propelled wings as they flew, having been dropped from a helicopter above the plane at 5500 feet.

Watch as they perform in formation alongside the plane.

  1. I think they should not be allowed to fly so close , next you will see one of them crash into or get sucked into the engines , or worst of all it opens up to suicide bombers , keep them away from passenger planes .

    • I am not an expert but I think you would find that, that the film was made with permission from the Airline, that would not be allowed in our air space, they are even banning drones

    • It was Libbi. Other doco’s went into every detail of the plans. Briefings after briefings attended by anyone even slightly involved.
      All those people involved in control of the crafts are at the top of their game in aeronautics.
      There were safety features on top of all the established ones.
      It was fabulous. I loved it.

  2. Suicide Bombers. Just shows how easy it would be to bring down a plane. No need to hide bombs inside anymore.

    • It is just a stunt, look at it again, film was taken inside the cabin on the jet of the pilots
