Red Bull landed a plane on top of the world’s most famous hotel

It was impossible, but not for Red Bull.
  • Red Bull attempted yet another out-of-this-world stunt
  • The famous drinks (and marketing) company landed an airplane on top of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai
  • The catch is the Burj Al Arab doesn’t have a runway, just a small helipad

The Burj Al Arab in Dubai is one of the world’s most famous and recognizable hotels.

And Red Bull landed an airplane on it.

There’s a helipad on top of the Burj Al Arab, so you’d think this was fairly normal.

The catch is Red Bull didn’t land a helicopter, which is what you’d do with a helipad – they actually landed an airplane.

As in, one that would ordinarily require a runway to land.

The helipad is only 27 meters long and the pilot had to train for two years for this stunt.

Amazingly, he pulled it off.
