The Emirates A380 and Jetman Dubai team recently took to the skies of Dubai for an extraordinary formation flight which showcases just how far aviation has come.

The formations were conducted over the Palm Jumeirah and Dubai skyline with Burj Khalifa in the background.

The carefully choreographed aerial showcase involved the world’s largest passenger aircraft, with its wings made in Deeside, flying at 4,000 feet in two holding patterns.

The A380 aircraft was then joined by the Jetman Dubai duo, experienced pilots and operators of the smallest jet propelled wing, who were deployed from a helicopter that hovered above the aircraft at 5,500 feet.

The duo conducted formations on both sides of the aircraft and joined to one side thereafter before breaking away.

Watch what went into making the Emirates A380 and the Jetman Dubai team formation happen.
