The dream of flying is as old as humanity itself. And it took quite some time before we humans were able to rise into the air. In the 15th century the first aircraft was invented by Leonardo da Vinci and a lot has changed since then. Meanwhile, people now even fly with jetpacks in the skies.
In this video you are going to see spectacular shots of the swiss pilot Yves Rossy as he flies with his jet wings over Dubai. Rossy who is better known as “Jetman”, flew with his 2-meter wings on his back on the coast of Dubai just like a Rocketeer. At an altitude of several hundred meters, the pilot demonstrated his maneuvers on the artificial island “Palm Jumeirah” for the first time together with his partner, the Frenchman Vince Reffet. As a team, “Jetman Dubai”, both of them have made their own personal dream of flying come true. They flew their aircraft unerringly through the air, and did breathtaking stunts in the sky of Dubai.
