This stunt is insane!

Last month social media was swamped with pictures and videos of a low flying Emirates plane in Dubai. The A380 was spotted circling some of Dubai’s most iconic landmarks, including the Burj Al Arab and The Palm Jumeirah. HH Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Al Maktoum posted these teasers on Instagram, fuelling speculation that Emirates were filming a new advert.

OK, recap done. It turns out that we may have been wrong (it happens occasionally). A new video published by Emirates and XDubai shows Jetman, aka Yves Rossy – the man who shoots through the sky with jet-propelled wings – hurtling through the sky next to the plane. The stunning video shows two jet-wing flyers perform terrifying stunts, weaving around the Emirates A380.
