Watch Boeing's New 787-9 Dreamliner Perform Near-Verticle Take Off

This video shows the incredible moment a Boeing 787 Dreamliner takes off in a near-vertical climb. It looks like it's defying all laws of aerodynamics - a stunt that has been traditionally left to the fighter jets or Red Arrow displays.

This incredible new hundred-tonne passenger plane shows just how far technology and engineering has come.

The pilots in this video were practising ahead of the Paris Air Show where Boeing, Airbus and others will demonstrate that modern passengers planes may look roughly the same as they always have but can now do some pretty incredible things.
