Flying a jetpack alongside an Emirates A380 in Dubai? Doesn’t sound dangerous at all.

Look, we don’t often post completely off-topic stuff, but given that we’ve flown Dan and Jason through Dubai to get to the UK and to IFA in Berlin, we think that’s enough of a link. Besides, if it’s good enough for Gizmodo to share this, we can too.

Frankly, this is just cool. The A380 is the largest commercial airliner in the world, and just watching one of Emirates’ A380s flying over Dubai in a video would be reason enough to watch it. This one, though, has a special feature; there’s two mad blokes (Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet) with jetpacks flying around it while it travels over some of Dubai’s most iconic imagery.

Truth be told, this is just stunning, and I watched it a couple of times before watching the behind-the-scenes video (which you can watch too, below):


Shameless video sharing as tech: Gizmodo.
