Jetpack travel like you've never seen it

Culture
[MUSIC] We've grown up seeing jetpacks on t.v. and in movies and have probably said to ourselves more than once, if I only had a jetpack, I could just fly up there. Well, that reality is getting closer. [MUSIC] Dare devils with some serious cojones took to the skies above Dubai to show off their jetpacks in a film produced by Dubai Films and X Dubai promoting extreme action sports in and around the city of Dubai. Yves Rossy and his protege jet man, Vince Reffet Showed off their aerial skills in this action packed video that looks like a slick movie trailer for the next avenger's film. Both of the pilots flew personal jet packs, which are not like the classic jet packs we've seen in T.V. and film That are more like personal jet planes that you strap to your back. The jet packs have fixed wings for stability and have to be launched from either a helicopter or an aircraft already in flight. The maneuverability of the jet packs is very impressive as they fly circles around the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa Standing 2,717 feet into the sky. You can read more about the jetpacks and their pilots on the Crave blog at CRAVE. CNET.com. The Crave story was written by Eric Mack. My name is Stephen Beacham. [MUSIC]
