So Jealous Right Now: Two Guys With Jetpacks Fly In Formation With Giant Airbus Above Dubai

November 6, 2015

This is a video of (self-proclaimed) "Jetman" Yves Rossy flying in formation with another jetpacker (Vince Reffet) and a massive Airbus A380 above Dubai. It was pretty stunning to watch. There's also another video detailing all the planning that went into making the video to prevent any accidents. Apparently, "Screw it, let's just wing it and see what happens" isn't good enough any more. I miss those days, I really do.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to Matthew MH, who has always dreamed of being sucked into a jet engine.

    Here I am, watching this, and the only thing that comes to mind is robbers on horses boarding an express train. I guess it's just a matter of time now.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    If that happened while I was on a plane, and presuming we didn't crash, i would be so impressed that they could have my wallet happily.

  • That's not a jetpack. They're wearing miniature airplanes.

    Think about that for a second. They're wearing miniature airplanes!

  • I WANT A TURBOMAN TURBO CHARGED JETPACK FOR CHRISTMAS IF I DON'T GET IT I'LL KILL MYSELF!

    Accessories sold separately. Batteries not included.

    A jet worn as a backpack. Ergo, a jetpack.

  • Meh

    No loopings so not impressed.

  • GeneralDisorder

    I bet the Airbus is more maneuverable and has a higher power to weight ratio than the winged jetpacks.
