While I love aviation as a whole, my real obsession is with commercial aviation. Is it cool when a fighter jet flies so crazy that you can barely keep your eyes on it? Sure.
But for me there’s something even cooler about some fun test flying on a heavy commercial jet.
For example, late last year I posted a link to an Airbus A350 formation flying video, whereby five A350s were flying in formation as if they were fighter jets:
The footage was nothing short of breathtaking.
Anyway, just before the 2015 Paris Air Show, Boeing took one of their Vietnam Airlines 787-9 aircraft for a spin, to show just how far it can be taken, given the right conditions:
Man, I wish I were on that flight!
