Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner has been an aircraft fraught with mechanical and engineering issues and production delays lost since the flagship craft was announced. And it’s had some difficulty gaining traction with U.S. airline fleets.
But chances are the jetliner, which now has a few airlines flying it into Chicago, won’t be taking off from O’Hare like the pilots do in this promotional video from the aircraft maker:
The Vietnam Airlines 787-9 was being put through paces leading up to the Paris Air Show, which started on Monday – and was already a sales success for Chicago-based Boeing.
It’s not the first time the Dreamliner has performed the aeronautical feat – an impressive bit of handling for a commercial jetliner pulling a takeoff more common to fighter jets.
No barrel rolls – yet – for the flagship of the Boeing fleet.
