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 maneuvers these Air Shows are the places to be. This particular exhibition is actually performed by two former military pilots. They are usually used to flying smaller planes, but even this giant poses no threat to them. It looks like putting them in a cockpit together is a pretty good idea.

The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a long-range, mid-size wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner developed by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical 3-class seating configurations. It is Boeing's most fuel-efficient airliner and is a pioneering airliner with the use of composite materials as the primary material in the construction of its airframe. The 787 was designed to be 20% more fuel efficient than the 767 it is replacing.

Have a look at this amazing flying display rehearsal by Boeing during the Paris Air Show 2015. It was a great performance. This Boeing 787 is a 787-9 and will join the fleet of Vietnam Airlines soon.

Stomach-roiling side-to-side rolls. Banking so hard the wings look like they might snap. These are moves you expect from a fighter jet, not a commercial airliner. Boeing conveyed the first of its most current Dreamliner flying machine to Singapore Airlines this week, denoting the first of 49 787-10 planes on request to the transporter, the biggest purchaser of the fly.
Boeing's 787 Dreamliner offers the world's most advanced in-flight experience. From the cleaner cabin air to composite materials used throughout the plane, each component of the Dreamliner uses the latest in technology.

20% less fuel and air pollution make flying in the Jetstar Boeing 787 Dreamliner better for the environment and better for you.
Fresh air is pulled from outside the plane and passed through two filters so you can breathe easy. The Jetstar Boeing 787 Dreamliner features a higher cabin humidity to help keep your body and skin more hydrated. We don’t know about you, but we are fascinated by this amazing plane!

Just take a look at the amazing video of Boeing 787 put to the test with successive landing and takeoff ! A Boeing 787 was caught on camera landing and taking off in a matter of seconds at Farnborough Airport in Hampshire, England. Airplane enthusiast Tom Pipe caught the footage while at the Farnborough Airshow.

The Farnborough International Airshow is a week-long event happening every two years that combines a major trade exhibition for the aerospace and defense industries with a public airshow. The airshow event is very important in the international aerospace and defense industry calendar, as it provides an opportunity to demonstrate civilian and military aircraft to potential customers and investors. To invent the airplane is nothing. To build one is something. But to fly is everything. So amazing!
