Watch This Boeing Dreamliner's Stunning Vertical Take-Off Stunt

We have featured plenty of extreme airliner landings and insane manoeuvres, but not a lot of crazy take-offs. Some Redditor made a GIF from a video of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner in almost-vertical-take-off, originally filmed at the 2014 Farnborough International Airshow. There's plenty more angles:

    I saw the last QANTAS B767 do a "Combat" (high rate of accent) take off at Darwin Airport.

    Spectacular.

    Amazing the things you can do with an aircraft when it is flying up to 110 000kg lighter than maximum take-off weight.

    Just a short-steep climb after achieving significantly more "ground" speed than V2.

    No, not vertical at any point. This is a very lightly loaded B787 demonstrating the extra engine power required by "second segment climb performance" for all twin engine airliners. It guarantees that a fully loaded twin can climb away after a single engine failure.
