--- Quote ---Emirates’ incredible Burj Khalifa video
Last week Emirates posted a video to social media of someone in a flight attendant uniform holding up five signs that have different phrases on them.

The video is intended to celebrate the UAE being taken off of the UK’s “Red List,” which should greatly increase demand for Emirates flights to & from the UK.

In the short 33 second video, you can see a flight attendant holding up signs that read:

“Moving The UAE To The UK Amber List”
“Has Made Us Feel”
“On Top Of The World”
“Fly Emirates”
“Fly Better”

At first it looks like the flight attendant is just standing in the sky, but then at the end of the video the camera zooms out, and you see that the person is actually standing on top of Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, which is the world’s tallest building.

This wasn’t a green screen?!
I had assumed that this was simply a green screen video, because, well, why wouldn’t it be? Nope, apparently that’s not the case…

There was indeed someone standing 830 meters (~2,720 feet) up, on the tip of the Burj Khalifa. Specifically, skydiver and general adventurer Nicole Smith-Ludvik was the person seen in the video. Not only that, but she is actually an Emirates flight attendant as well, so that’s even cooler. She climbed all the way up to the very top of the Burj Khalifa, and then a helicopter and drone company did the filming.

I also watched the "behind the scenes" ... it still took guts.

Emirates made a follow up video for a new ad campaign

Yeah, I’ve never had a problem with heights, still work at heights, but I wouldn’t do that.
