That is all, just, whoa.

In preparation for the Paris Air Show next week, Boeing put on a dress rehearsal with its 787-9 in its home state of Washington that was nothing short of dazzling.

The airplane manufacturer showed off the capabilities of its latest Dreamliner iteration by releasing this video footage on Thursday showing off what it calls “technical maneuvers.”

With various banks and ascents, the 787-9 shows off its smooth moves throughout the video. Yet the real jaw-dropping moment comes right at the beginning when the plane appears to perform a vertical takeoff. It doesn’t, of course, camera angles being what they are and all. But the pitch is nonetheless impressive as anything.
