Awesome. Just awesome. The craziest human, Jetman Yves Rossy, and his protege, Jetman Vince Reffet, did one of the coolest stunts imaginable: they flew in jet packs right next to an Airbus A380 on top of the Dubai skyline. Imagine looking out the airplane window and seeing a guy flying by.
The background: China’s president Xi Jinping was visiting Pakistan so Pakistan sent eight JF-17 Thunder fighter jets to escort China’s presidential plane when it entered Pakistani air space in a nice diplomatic gesture. The cool: I just like seeing small little fighter jets trailing a big jet in a flying-V pattern.
A Virgin Atlantic Boeing 747-400 had to make an emergency landing earlier today at Gatwick Airport, London, when its right landing gear got stuck. Amazingly enough, the pilots managed to keep control with only three of the four gears in place.
