Watch Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner Complete A Near Vertical Takeoff, Together With Some Very Sharp Turns! Wow!
I have flown a great deal lately and admit to still worrying about the safety of commercial jets. This was evident on a recent flight when the pilot informed the passengers that it “may get a little bumpy” because he was navigating through multiple thunderstorms.
Even so, I do trust the design engineers and pilots and have always wondered just how maneuverable a commercial jet really is—just what is their capability during an emergency? I recently saw this Boeing 787-9 video on YouTube and was quite impressed, so I am sharing to see what others think. Check out the angle of ascent 36 seconds in, this is outrageous!
