A vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) aircraft is one that can hover, take off, and land vertically. This classification can include a variety of types of aircraft including fixed-wing aircraft as well as helicopters and other aircraft with powered rotors, such as cyclogyros/cyclocopters and tiltrotors. The idea of vertical flight has been around for thousands of years and sketches for a VTOL (helicopter) shows up in Leonardo da Vinci's sketchbook.

There are many videos with astonishing airplanes’ maneuvers but this is the most another heart-pounding video that went viral showing expert pilots putting a passenger plane through its paces. It shows the moment an Airbus A350 makes a near-vertical take-off. The incredible footage, captured at the Farnborough Air Show in Hampshire, UK, shows the giant plane rise rapidly into the air seconds after taking off. The display of acrobatics is aimed at demonstrating the new model’s capabilities.

The footage showing an almost immediate rise of the Airbus A350 after take-off is well-captured by Colin Porteous, an aviation enthusiast from Farnborough. He captures the footage during the main event where the Airbus A350 take-off from runway 24. This aviation aficionado said: “For passenger comfort, the takeoff is normally much less steep with no dramatic turns”.

We are left dumbfounded by the mere sight of this near 90 degrees, vertical Airbus A350 take-off. We can see how the aircraft performs a touch and go lift-off and there is not actually a modest increase in G-force for the pilot.

The Airbus A350 - an extra wide-bodied aircraft - can seat up a total of 366 passengers, has a wingspan of 64.75m and has a range of 8 100 nautical miles.

Talk about heart-pounding! This video of a close vertical departure and arriving of the new Airbus A350 is sufficient to give anybody a bad case of nerves. This is an endeavor to hotshot what this new plane can do and it was shot at the Famborough Air Show in Hampshire, England. The plane ascents like an ordinary airship for a couple of moments at that point appears to head straight up vertically.

The A350's fuselage is produced using composite materials, including carbon fiber — instead of utilizing traditional aluminum development strategies. This enabled Airbus to incorporate wide, all-encompassing windows. Bunches of windows.

As we explained, a vertical take-off and landing aircraft is one that can hover, take off and land vertically. This grouping can incorporate an assortment of kinds of airship including settled wing flying machine and additionally helicopters and other airplanes with fueled rotors, for example, cyclogyros/cyclocopters and tiltrotor!

Talking about taking off and cool airplanes we have another cool video for you! Check out this amazing footage of how an afterner camera captures stunning fighter jet take off ! An afterburner is a component present on some jet engines, mostly those used on military supersonic aircraft. Its purpose is to provide an increase in thrust, usually for supersonic flight, takeoff and for combat situations! This is so incredible!

    Will you people please hire a professional pilot to comment on aviation videos. This and virtually every other aviation video you post has narrative which is embarrassingly amateurish and full of completely erroneous comments which make you and the author look silly

    This anything BUT VTOL. It's called perspective, if you were viewing this from the side you'd see it was moving forward, a lot.

    I bet any modern passenger plane could do this if it was empty of all passengers and cargo and barely fueled.

    Do it with a full passenger load. Then check the aircraft for barf. The real test.
