New B787 Dreamliner Performs at Paris Air show
New B787 Dreamliner Performs at Paris Air show! 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.
Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners made its very first public appearance in the flying display at the Paris Air Show, which runed from June 15-21, 2015. Resplendent in its fully painted new livery, with the golden lotus – Vietnam’s national flower – taking pride of place, Vietnam Airlines’ new Dreamliner will make its debut in public by performing its first ever demonstration flights at one of the world’s biggest air shows.
The Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner is the latest extension to Boeing’s super-efficient 787 family. The new aircraft can fly farther, and with more passengers and more cargo, than the Boeing 787-8 – but with the same exceptional environmental performance: 20 percent less fuel usage and 20 percent fewer emissions than the aircraft it will replace. The new aircraft will feature fully flat beds in Business Class, with in-flight WiFi services also set to be introduced. Passengers will also benefit from larger windows and stow bins, modern LED lighting, higher humidity and cleaner air, lower cabin pressure and a smoother, quieter ride.
“With this agreement, Vietnam Airlines shows its growing leadership in Southeast Asia by making the 787 Dreamliner the backbone of their twin aisle fleet,” said spokesman of Boeing. Also, it was said that in addition to selling the planes, it will also bring high-tech aviation manufacturing to Vietnam.
The flag carrier will also soon take delivery of its first Airbus A350-900 from Airbus. Both new types have now been painted by the respective manufacturers.
In a video posted on the verified account of Boeing on YouTube, the 787-9, bearing the distinctive blue and gold lotus livery of Vietnam Airlines, performs a mind-blowing takeoff that is almost vertical!
