Yves Rossy and skydiver/BASE jumper Vince Reffet looked like superheroes from a new Marvel Comics movie as they soared over Dubai while wearing jet-powered wings on Monday.

Their stunt set a world record for a twin human formation flight, according to (video below).

The Jetman wings have a seven-foot wingspan and can travel as fast as 125 mph, reports Forbes.

Rossy has previously tried 15 prototypes of the Jetman wings. This current set includes four kerosene-powered jets.

Rossy and Reffet jumped out of an airplane at 7,000 feet, did some free falling in order to get up to speed and began flying.
