The Airbus A-380 is the biggest commercial aircraft in the world - so you might think that it wouldn't be particularly agile in the air. But this video proves otherwise.

This footage from an airshow in Santiago, Chile, shows an impressive exhibition of what the Airbus is really capable of.

Watching the incredible take-off and amazing manoeuvers is extremely impressive given the sheer size of the aircraft. Just moments after gaining height the plane makes a quick change of direction, heading left in what appears to be a full circle.

As the footage pans out we're able to see the busy crowd that the plane has pulled in.

The plane heads off into the distance only to go full circle again as it loops over the gathered crowd.

Let's hope any passengers on board fared a little better than the Australian weatherman who passed out live on air in 2013 during a plane stunt.

It appears Channel 7's Grant Denyer thought staying conscious during a terrifying trick was a little easier than it turned out to be.

Denyer came out of the incident seeing the funny side, tweeting later: "Well this has never happened before! Even worse... geez I look ugly when I sleep."
