Dramatic footage has emerged of the Boeing P-8 Poseidon putting on display at the 2016 Farnborough International Airshow and this clip sure contains some awesome footage of the aircraft in action.

Developed for the US Navy, The P-8 conducts anti-submarine warfare, anti-surface warfare along with an electronic signals intelligence role. This involves carrying torpedoes, depth charges, harpoon anti-ship missiles, and other weapons. Incredible!

There’s something special about watching the flying displays during the Paris Air Show or Farnborough Air Show. Looking at these massive metal birds take off from the surface is both cringe-worthy and exhilarating. If you want to see civilian planes doing unusual manoeuvres these Air Shows are the places to be.

Have a look at this amazing flying display rehearsal by <a href="" target="_blank">Boeing</a> during the Farnborough International Airshow 2016. It was indeed a great performance.

Although, landing a plane is one of the most critical phases of a flight and that’s why it’s the second thing pilots learn during their training after basic flight controls and recovery techniques, performing aircraft stunts mid-air can be quite demanding as well.

Planes glide on air currents and since these currents are not always a smooth mass, turbulence makes the plane sway, even if it’s so close to the ground. That is why pilots receive detailed training about landing procedures and use their <a href="" target="_blank">skills</a> to perform the safe landing. High winds may be inconvenient, but they are not dangerous, even when they come across the runway.

    Looks like the plane that hit the South Tower. No, I don't mean because it's grey, and has no windows. I mean the maneuvering.

    Not as impressive as Tex Johnson's 1 G barrel roll in the Boeing 367-80, the prototype of the 707, in Seattle on August 6, 1955. See

    Wow! Did you see that? It was making turns and stuff! While in the AIR! Incredible! I wouldn't have believed it unless I saw it, on the internet even!
