The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is one of the best things that have happened to the airline industry after the jumbo 747. Anyone who has taken a ride on this modern aircraft with cutting edge passenger comforts and unmatched fuel efficiency will agree that it is a pleasant experience to be onboard the 787.
On the other hand, the latest variant of the most popular aircraft on the planet – the 737 MAX 9, is currently the most sought after aircraft for aviation enthusiasts.For the upcoming Paris Air Show, Boeing decided to display the aircraft and it has released a new video to have the maximum impact for the announcement – a synced flight of the two aircraft in the spotlight.
The video shows the 787-10 and the 737 MAX 9 doing a formation flight over the Washington State. Apart from the beautiful shape of the 787 and the gleaming paint job of the 737 MAX 9, Boeing also indicates the ability of these yet-to-be-launched aircraft for commercial flights. Both the aircraft display great agility and superior aerodynamic stability while performing high-speed manoeuvres, Deccan Chronicle reports.
To some eyes, it may seem that there’s a considerable amount of CGI trickery going in the background. However, Boeing has assured that everything you see in the video has been performed for real by expert pilots and the whole thing has been shot with a helicopter and a chase plane.
According to the Deccan Chronicle, both the aircraft will go into public service by 2018. But you can catch a glimpse of these next-gen aircraft at the 2017 Paris Air Show as part of static display exhibits.
