When you’re on a commercial jet, the last thing you want is for your pilot to decide to get creative and start doing tricks. At the Paris Air Show, though, with your feet planted firmly on solid earth, seeing a huge jet fly incredibly close to the ground is pretty cool.
That’s what visitors to this years show were treated to, as the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner put on a pretty spectacular show in preparation for its big moment. The Dreamliner seats 280 passengers, so it’s not like this is a plane designed to do the tight, low turns you see above.
The Paris Air Show, a hotbed of international aviation business deals, runs June 15-21.
