Wow! Watch 2 Men Fly Jetpacks Next To An A380 Plane

As a kid, I loved watching the movie, The Rocketeer. Set in 1938, a stunt pilot finds a jetpack and flies around saving the country.

Now, that dream is even closer to becoming a reality. Yves Rossy (also fondly known as “Jetman“) and his protege, Vince Reffet, stun us in their latest feat: flying in formation alongside an Emirates A380, the world’s largest passenger aircraft.

Meticulously choreographed, the pair and an A380 plane fly above the Dubai skyline to produce amazing video footage of this heart racing stunt.

At only 88 pounds, the jetpacks can zip along at speeds of up to 170 knots (about 195 miles per hour). Want to watch more? Check out their YouTube channel and website.
