There’s a famous quote: “If you did it, it ain’t braggin’.” Boeing did it — in front of a camera. An eye-popping rehearsal video Boeing released Thursday shows off its newest version of the Dreamliner aircraft — the 787-9 — performing some impressive and beautiful banks and ascents. The takeoff alone will get your attention. So maybe it’s not bragging, but the flight certainly qualifies as world-class swagger for the Dreamliner, which is scheduled for a performance next week at the 2015 Paris Air Show. Watch these breathtaking “technical maneuvers” — as Boeing calls them — while the Vietnam Airlines plane soars over Moses Lake, Washington.
Yeah, I would not enjoy that takeoff.
