In perhaps the most insane film ever made, two men with bigger cojones than any of us have strapped on jetpacks and flown within feet of an Emirates Airbus A380 as it flies at low altitude over Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
These fearless stuntman, who double as the most bad-ass dudes in the world, are Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet. Previously, they have made us grip the arms of our office chairs in suspense as they flew side by side with a B17 bomber and navigated the Grand Canyon. But that was all child’s play compared to this high-end production for Emirates Airline.
Flying at just 4,000 feet above the gleaming metropolis of Dubai, Rossy and Reffet had no room for error. The Jetman explain that extensive planning and safety measures were put in place, even though the film makes the feat seem easy.
On their website, the pair explains:
While the formation flight looked effortless on film, painstaking planning and meticulous collaboration with an intense focus on safety drove all efforts.
While we still have almost two months left in 2015, I think many of us are ready to crown this the coveted “Most insane video of the year” award.
