Men fly over Dubai - level 3

Men fly over Dubai - level 3

20-05-2015 07:00

With jet-powered carbon fibre wings strapped to their backs, jetmen Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet soared over the skies of Dubai on Tuesday. The daring duo has described the stunt as the first-ever twin human formation above the city’s famous palm-shaped island.

They jumped out of a helicopter, powered their wings, and flew for ten minutes over Dubai’s skies, diving and performing acrobatic stunts. They even managed to hold superman poses during flight before pulling their parachutes and gently floating back down to the ground.

Difficult words: carbon fibre (a tough type of plastic), soar (to fly), daring (doing something dangerous), stunt (something that amazes people and is dangerous), acrobatic (using physical skills), pose (put your body in a type of position).
