This is what flying a jetpack over Dubai looks like

Pub debate starter: What is the ultimate superpower?

It's flight. You know it is. Sure, super strength would have its advantages, and invisibility might have some interesting (if sinisterly voyeuristic) uses - but even the ridiculously muscular and occasionally visible are going to feel inferior when you drift off into the stratosphere on a whim.

Which should explain in part why we're feeling deeply inadequate when watching the antics of the 'Jetmen', Yves Rossy and Vince Reffet.

Strapped underneath their jet-powered wings, flying over the sands and monolithic towers of Dubai, you can imagine they feel every inch the real life superheroes.

The following 4K short, put together by XDubai, follows the "Young Feathers" in their dream to become "completely free".

Grab yourself a cup of tea, sit back, and prepare to feel strong levels of envy.
