Watch These Guys With Jetpacks Fly Beside a Massive A380 Airplane


It's not every day that you get to see two guys with jetpacks flying incredibly close to a massive A380 airplane. The A380 is the largest commercial airplane in service today.

Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet have strapped personal jetpacks to their backs and are filmed flying alongside the airplane over Dubai, carefully and majestically moving around the airplane before finally splitting off at the end of the video.

In this impressive stunt video, the two men were dropped from 5,500 feet in the air by helicopter, where they would then meet up with the aircraft at 4,000 feet.

This reminds me of James Bond.
