At Farnborough, Boeing took one of their 787s out for a aerobatics display to show off the performance of the 787.
But can you do the same with something a little smaller… say the Boeing 737?
Worry not – there is the perfect answer for this:
Boeing have taken their new 737 off to EAA AirVenture Oshkosh for the week – where it is demonstrating the new Boeing 737 MAX 8 in an airshow environment.
And as usual, there’s an amazing flight to watch. Just watch the video.
Although I love this statement at the beginning:
Flown by Boeing test pilots. Do not attempt.
It’s amazing what these planes can do in the air when there are no pesky passengers aboard them.
The Boeing 737 MAX 8 will launch with Southwest airlines in 2017. Boeing have orders 2,835 737 MAX Series aircraft – and that’s a lot of planes no matter how you weigh it up.
