Daredevils Fly in Formation With Giant Airbus A380 November 28 2015 Liquid error (templates/blog line 19): internal
The Airbus A380 is the largest commercial airplane in service today. It can hold over 600 passengers. Because of its size, controllers require additional separation between takeoffs and landings for wake turbulence. The vortices coming off of the wing are as strong as a tornado.
Two daredevils coordinated with Emirates to fly in formation with the giant airliner. With great precision, they flew alongside the 800,000lb airliner while a chase plane and camera crew filmed the stunt. Check out the video below!
