Stunning Video of Jetmen Flying Besides Airbus A380

Forget flying inside a plane - these daredevils have taken air travel to the next level.

Jetman, Yves Rossy, and Jetman Junior, Vince Reffet, took to the skies to record the hair-raising stunt, which saw the duo flying beside an Emirates A380 passenger plane over the Dubai skyline.

The incredible footage shows the pair soaring above the clouds at speeds of up to 120mph with nothing but jet-packs 4,000 feet off the ground.

The video starts off looking like an advertisement for the world's largest passenger plane, however 20 seconds in - Rossy and Reffet appear above the jets wings.

The pair, who were deployed from a helicopter that hovered above the aircraft at 5,500 feet, then conduct formations on both sides of the aircraft before joining on one side and then breaking away.

Sporting their Jetman custom built flight suits - which weigh almost 55kg and have a wing span of two metres - they flew over the likes of the Palm Jumeirah, the Dubai skyline and the Burj Khalifa.

Learn how the Emirates Airbus A380 and Jetman Dubai flew together in a breathtaking formation flight over Dubai to make aviation history, in this behind the scenes video.

Over the last three months, Emirates and the Jetman Dubai teams worked closely to diligently plan and coordinate every detail of this project.
