Jetpack Daredevils Soar and Dive Around an Emirates A380 Superjumbo Jet

By: | November 11th, 2015

In an insane new video, Jetman Yves Rossy and his protégé Vince Reffet are back with arguably their craziest stunt yet.

As you can see, the two jetpack daredevils perform some pretty risky maneuvers in the sky, literally soaring, dipping, and diving around an Emirates A380 superjumbo jet.

At the end of the day, this is a great marketing tool for Dubai’s Emirates airline, but it doesn’t make the stunt any less impressive.

The jumbo jet flew at an altitude of 4,000 feet while Rossy and Reffet were filmed by a circling helicopter doing all of their different aerial tricks.

“While the formation flight looked effortless on film, painstaking planning and meticulous collaboration with an intense focus on safety drove all efforts,” say the Jetman duo on their website.
