Vince Reffet, the ‘bird man’.

The Frenchman Vince Reffet, member of the duo ‘Soul Flyers’ and known as the ‘bird man’, died on Tuesday in an accident during a training session in Dubai, reports the online edition of the daily L’Equipe.

Vince Reffet had made great feats with fellow ‘Soul Flyers’ Fred Fugen on flights with wingsuit and jetman (equipped with mini-engines).

In 2017 he managed to get on a plane in mid-flight and a year earlier in 2016 he took off from the highest tower in the world, the Burj Khalifa (828 meters), in Dubai, and flew alongside an Airbus A380 or alongside the French Patrol.
