VIRAL VIDEO: Jetman flies alongside Emirates A380
Yves Ross, also known as Jetman, has performed numerous impressive stunts, including a tandem base jump from the top of the Burj Khalifa. But this year he took things to another level!
Ross first invented an individual jet pack which uses carbon-fiber wings for flight. He then became the face of XDubai last year when a video of him using jet-propelled wings in tandem with a light aeroplane emerged.
Yves Ross was accompanied by his wingman Vince Reffet, a champion skydiver, who grabbed the world’s attention as one part of the tandem base jump from the top of the Burj Khalifa in 2014.
In the incredible video, the A380 can be seen flying at 4,000 feet. The guys were then dropped from a helicopter above the plane at 5,500 feet. The carefully choreographed stunt was conducted over the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai skyline with Burj Khalifa in the background.
