Aplane has landed on Dubai’s iconic Burj Al Arab helipad.
The breath-taking stunt was undertaken by pilot Lukasz Czepiela and shared on his personal Instagram page as well as by Red Bull and Visit Dubai.
Czepiela revealed the stunt had been two years in the making and came after 650 practice runs undertaken on the ground.
Plane lands on Dubai’s Burj Al Arab
The helipad measures just 27m across and is 14 times smaller than the world’s shortest commercial runway, meaning it took immense skill for the pilot to land on the bullseye, amid steady wind conditions.
The Burj Al Arab helipad is 212m above sea level and corresponds with the hotel’s 56th floor.
The specially modified Red Bull plane had 13 custom adjustments to make it as light as possible and able to land without the need for a long runway.
