It's not often that we get to take in the beauty that is an airplane gliding through clear skies, and when we do, it's from thousands of feet away. Boeing shared a video of the 787-9 Dreamliner this week, though, that shows just what these aircraft can do.

The flight was a test run for the 2016 Farnborough Airshow, which begins next week. The pilots pull out a few moves you aren't likely to experience on your next flight (like bank turns and a steep take-off).
