According to the spokesperson, Jetman Dubai is working closely with all relevant authorities in the investigation.

The Jetmen have pulled off a series of dramatic flights over Dubai, soaring in tandem above the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa and alongside an Emirates Airbus A380, the world’s largest commercial airliner.

“We ask that you please keep Vince’s family in your thoughts and prayers,” the post said.
