Dramatic video of A380 passing under helicopter

Precision flying takes place during promotional video filming
A helicopter had a near miss with a fully-loaded Emirates A380 as the aircraft glided less than 300 metres below it in a tense display of precision flying during filming for a promotional video, with the whole thing captured on film.
The A380 can be seen on the right approaching the helicopter and then flying directly under the chopper before passing to the left. Organisers were initially worried for the helicopter’s safety, but aviation experts at FlightClub claim the stunt went ahead as planned.
The aircraft was being filmed near Dubai as part of an Emirates promotional film above the Palm Jumeirah. The A380 has a capacity of 853 people.
“Emirates can confirm that it has conducted air-to-air filming of the A380 over various parts of Dubai as well as the UAE, and has safely completed all of the required flights,” a spokesman for the airline said.
