Watch Two Guys in Jet Packs Fly Alongside an Emirates Plane
There are stunning views outside the windows of the average airplane window, but seeing two guys flying in jet packs alongside a jumbo jet ranks pretty high up. That's the scene set by Emirates along with two members of Jetman Dubai and it's unbelievable from every angle. According to Sploid, the guys in jet packs are Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet who look like they're wearing gear better suited to some elite military infiltration unit. Or superheroes. It could go either way. They're accompanied in this clip by an Airbus A380 that dwarfs them in the sky. RELATED: Watch 5 Huge Airbus A350s Perform Stunt Formations
The sight would be impressive enough with bland scenery, but Dubai provided an appropriately jaw-dropping backdrop for the stunt. You'll see the Palm Jumeirah and the Dubai skyline and be torn between watching what's in the sky or what's on the ground.
There are shots from outside the plane that show off the scale of it all, but the interior shots are just as impressive. Looking out an airplane window and seeing two guys in jet packs cruising along by the wing is not a view anyone ever expects to see.
