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. 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 inside 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 air frame. 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.
