This Boeing Passenger Jet Should Have Been In 'Top Gun'

Meet the future of airsickness. 

This is Boeing's 787-9 Dreamliner going through some impressive aerobatics ahead of this year's Farnborough International Airshow — although we're guessing it won't be doing any near-vertical takeoffs with passengers on board.

The video shows it swooping down to hit the tarmac only to immediately take off again — and generally just showing off. Who's piloting this thing? These are the kinds of maneuvers you would expect from a fighter jet, not a plane designed to take the family to Disney World.

The plane is Boeing's largest Dreamliner yet. At 206 feet long, it can hold up to 290 passengers.
