The Dreamliner Dazzles Paris

More than 10 million people have watched on YouTube Boeing test pilots Randy Neville and Van Chaney seemingly push a brand new Vietnam Airlines Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to its limits. (In fact, they were just flying near the edge of the plane’s “testing envelope.”)

The plane, which is powered by a pair of GEnx engines, landed at the Paris Air Show last week, and Neville and Chaney performed their awesome routine in real time.

Boeing test pilot Chad Lundy narrated a video from one of the Paris flyovers (above). Photographer Adam Senatori captured some of the flight’s best moments.
