Jetpack Men Chase Emirates A380 Jumbo Jet
Emirates airline has released an incredible video showing two men with jetpacks flying alongside the massive A380, which is the largest passenger jet in the world. The two “Jetmen of Dubai” are both experienced stuntmen and pilots.
The jetpacks have a top speed of 195 MPH, so the A380 was definitely going about as slow as it could go to get these truly incredible shots over Dubai.
The footage was shot from a helicopter flying 1,500 ft above the stunt flight, which was made to look far easier than it actually was according to the airline. “While the formation flight looked effortless on film, painstaking planning and meticulous collaboration with an intense focus on safety drove all efforts.”
Emirates has been on fire lately with their advertising after the recent Jennifer Aniston commercial last month. I hope Emirates continues releasing quality promotional material. I won’t lie I’m a huge fan of both promotional pieces. Great work Emirates, keep it coming, and US based airlines better be taking notes!
