Watch These Jetmen Fly Wing-to-Wing With an Airbus A380 Above Dubai

Enviado há
 
Well, this is insane. In this video, Jetman pilots Yves Rossy and his protegeVince Reffet fly wing-to-wing with an Airbus A380, the world’s largest airliner. It’s incredible. (gizmodo.com) Mais...

Stay out of the wake and away from those big air suckers under the wings too!

So, these guys didn't just say "Hey, lets chase that 380"
Seems a little more thought went into it.

Now there's a publicity stunt that'll be hard to top :D

If it helps, there is a trick in photography where you use a long lens (over 400mm) and the longer the lens the flatter the items in the image looks. In reality they were close from an aircraft perspective but the long lens made it look a lot closer. My $.02 as a semi pro photographer and air enthusiast.

Me parece buena la idea ya será un vuelo directo
Serán 17 horas de vuelo pero estoy seguro que pensarán a todas las comodidades.

Jetmen sponsored by Skydive Dubai, presumably sponsored by 'Dubai Inc.'
Emirates, some say, sponsored by Dubai Inc.'
Dubai Inc. - shameless self-publicist.

Imagine the scene;
Some Skydiving Dudes chatting -
"Jetman is the worlds smallest manned 4 engine Jet, how cool to have a couple flying with the worlds largest 4 engine passenger jet..."
"I know a bloke with a few 380's, perhaps he'd lend us one for an afternoon..."
"Yeah, I know another bloke with a Go-Pro, maybe he could film it for us..."
A few 'What are you doing next Friday' phone calls later...

This is a great movie. The jetmen were flying well out of the Airbus wingtip vertices and far from the engine intakes. I'm sure that it was well coordinated with safety being paramount both in their briefing and execution. Wish I would be able to do that; both flying the jet pack and the Airbus.

Good points all, but the apparent GoPro video with its wide angle lens shot from a Jetman mounted camera looked pretty close. Would love to know what kind of chase plane/camera set up took the other footage.

Es demasiado peligroso el vuelo tan cercano de las aeronaves. A la velocidad que se desplazan, cualquier error minimo de cualquiera de los pilotos puede causar una tragedia

I know both Yves and his apprentice Vince personally. Their home base is the small aerodrome of Bex (LSGB) in Switzerland. They do their practice flights out of a Pilatus Porter. This happens to be my home base as well when I'm in Switzerland. Here are some pictures I took of them.

I get the size difference but I'd rather see this with the 777. The 380 is so ugly...

Nah , the aircraft was flying very slow (look at flaps) and even if someone could get up to an airliner in flight i dont see them opening the door and getting in with that whole wingsuit on

Wing suit or not, Don't worry! It is impossible to open a door or an over-wing exit from either the inside or the outside of a pressurized airliner.

Very very stupid stunt. Entertaining to the general public,damaging to the aviation community. They hope to sell a jet pack or two, at the expense of you know who. Emirates just want to take over the world. They don't have a clue either.

The Emirates A380 and Jetman Dubai take to the skies of Dubai for an unprecedented formation flight

The Emirates A380 and the Jetman Dubai duo recently took to the skies of Dubai for an extraordinary formation flight which showcased just how far aviation has come. The formations were conducted over the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai skyline with Burj Khalifa in the background.

Two guys wearing jetpacks fly alongside an Airbus A380

So far, we saw ex-fighter pilot Yves Rossy — a.k.a. Jetman — fly his jet-propelled wing in formation with another pilot, and we saw him whizz around Dubai's Burj Khalifa in glorious 4K resolution.

His latest stunt, however, again performed with parachuter Vince Reffet, is perhaps the most impressive so far. The two pilots fly their jetpacks in formation with an Emirates-owned Airbus A380.
