” A former fighter pilot and Guinness record holder – known as ‘Jetman’ – has performed a new stunt, taking over the skies of the United Arab Emirates. High-flying Swiss national Yves Rossy teamed up with Dubai, flying above the wealth of its land.

” To fly alone is great, but to fly with another guy is greater,” Rossy, who is equipped with a pair of jet-propelled wings, said in a new 4K video, before taking part in a formation flight with Hungarian aerobatics champion Veres Zoltan, conquering the heights in cloudless Dubai.

  Rossy and his futuristic jet suit have partnered with Dubai to push yet higher boundaries within the realm of anti-gravity experiences.

“I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ.

It’s not the state or local police doing the flying, and the FAA is giving out little information, even to city officials.

The aircraft doesn’t appear to be flying when it’s cloudy out, only taking to the skies on starlit nights.”
