Watch incredible footage of Boeing Dreamliner shooting straight up into the sky instantly from take off as pilots prepare for air show Boeing test pilots pushed the 787-9 to its limits in advance of its display at next week’s Paris Air Show.
The pilot pushed the $250 million aircraft almost vertical as it left the ground in Washington earlier this week. The Dreamliner can carry 280 passengers more than 8,000 miles due to its highly efficient design and engines The 787-9 is 20 feet longer than its predecessor, allowing it to carry a greater number of passengers and freight.
 
These are the amazing scenes as a Boeing 787 Dreamliner pilot pushes the jet into a steep climb just seconds after the passenger aircraft takes off in advance of the 2015 Paris Airshow.
 
The test pilots pushed the aircraft into a climb far steeper than anything that would normally be attempted during an ordinary passenger service in an effort to show the advanced aircraft’s incredible capabilities.
 
The aircraft took off from Washington and performed a range of incredibly complex manoeuvres
So far, 509 Boeing 787-9s have been ordered by 30 customers, including Vietnam Airways, whose aircraft will be demonstrated at the Paris Airshow, before it is finally delivered to the airline.
 
According to Boeing, the 787-9 has had its fuselage stretched by 20 feet compared with the 787-8 and can carry more passengers and freight further, using 20 per cent less fuel than the aircraft they replace Airline and military customers will arrive in Le Bourget Airport in France next week for the 51st Paris Air Show, which is the longest running event of its type in the world.
 
Boeing, Airbus and the other major civilian and military manufacturers will all be at the show, including Russians – although due to sanctions, no Russian pilots will be allowed to fly at the event.
According to Mike Sinnett, Boeing’s head of product development: “If you can save 1 per cent of fuel burn in an aircraft then the airlines are willing to pay for it.”
