Watch The Breathtaking Footage Of Two Record-Breaking Jetpacks In Action

If you were wondering what you wanted for Christmas, here is the answer…

Jaw-dropping footage of the first world record of a twin human formation flight has hit the internet, and proved that the age of jetpacks is here. Start saving, people – the future is now.

The video features Yves “Jetman” Rossy and his protege Vince Reffet, both of whom wear custom-designed carbon fiber jet wings with a six-foot wingspan, powered by four JetCat P200 engines delivering 52lbs of thrust, for an average speed of 200km/h.

The result is unlike anything we’ve seen before. And this isn’t an awkward and protected flight test, it’s a stunning display of high speed aerobatics performed by two incredibly skilled, but clearly insane, adrenaline junkies.

It’s like the dogfighting sequences in Top Gun, if Maverick and Goose met Iron Man and got some awesome suits instead of their now-lame F-14 jets.
