The future is unevenly distributed in favor of the United Arab Emirates. Recently, two men donned jetpacks and flew into the night air above Dubai. Yves “Jetman” Rossi previously flew over the Emirati desert in his custom-built wing with jets, but for this paired flight, he was joined by Vince Reffet, a skydiver who once base jumped off the Burj Khalifa.
