Wow. Watch the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner pull off an amazing aerial display in preparation for the 2015 Air Show. You can see the big bodied jet pretend it’s like a stunt plane and basically do tricks in the air. The most impressive has to be the take off though, the jet almost immediately goes nearly perpendicular to the ground once it starts flying.
