Two men have taken to the skies to accomplish what many can only dream of – flying in formation with a jet plane.
Jetman Dubai – Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet – joined the Emirates A380 over the Palm Juneirah and Dubai skyline for a showcase of how far the world of aviation has come.
The routine may appear effortless but it involved meticulous planning to keep everyone safe.
The stunt saw the A380 – the world’s largest passenger jet – flying at 4,000ft in two holding patterns.
Jetman Dubai, pilots of the smallest jet-propelled wings, were then deployed from a helicopter flying 1,500ft above the Emirates jet.
They then conducted formations on both sides of the aircraft against the backdrop of a Dubai sunset before breaking away from the plane.
