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.
