Swiss pilot and engineer Yves Rossy recently flew over Dubai on a jetpack alongside his protégé, skydiver Vince Reffet. On Monday, the daredevils shared an extraordinary HD video of their experience that’s bound to give you the chills.
The footage was shot from a chase plane and two GoPro cameras attached to the men as they soared over the desert and cityscape—at one point, they even circle around the tip of the Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world. Rossy has also flown with his self-made jetpack over Mount Fuji and the Grand Canyon.
