Watch Boeing's Dreamliner Do Tricks That Would Make You Sick

Jul 16, 2014

Boeing has been flying high in preparation for the biggest airplane manufacturers' trade shows this week—the Farnborough Airshow—where the aircraft maker is showing off its new 787-9 Dreamliner. In a newly released video, Boeing shows its pilots prepping for the flight program with a series of stunning maneuvers as the plane turns at sharp angles through the sky and climbs and falls in precipitous swerves.

The Dreamliner is a key strategy in Boeing's competition with its main rival, the France-headquartered Airbus. Companies including American Airlines, United Airlines and Air France are incorporating the Dreamliner into their fleets. The Farnborough International Air Show runs July 14-20.

Check out the video here for a healthy dose of elevator rock and flight trickery, but don't expect any barrel rolls.
