Sure, it doesn’t beat traveling in The Residence on Etihad’s A380, but the airline’s superjumbo flying alongside the UAE National Aerobatic Team (above) is definitely something you’ll want to see. Following Emirates’ absolutely phenomenal air-to-air video, in which the airline’s A380 flew alongside two jetpack-equipped humans, Etihad decided to shoot an A380 formation flight of its own.

Etihad’s A380 shoot is nowhere near as exciting as the Emirates video — it was definitely more of a spectacle for aviation fans on the ground, who were attending the Formula One Grand Prix in Abu Dhabi — but it’s worth watching nonetheless.
