Next week, thousands will descend upon Farnborough, England, a small town outside of London to witness one of the biggest events in the aviation world — the Farnborough Air Show. The show features the latest in all things aviation — from small drones to military fighter jets. As you’d expect, both Airbus and Boeing will have a sizable presence, with plans to show off the very latest in commercial aviation.

Boeing’s 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft is the company’s most advanced jet to date and is packed with technology that boosts efficiency, performance and comfort for passengers. This week’s crazy aviation video shows just how much of a performance machine the aircraft really is — it performs a stunning, almost vertical takeoff and then continues to be pushed to its limits in other incredible maneuvers.

Team TPG will be represented at the Farnborough Air Show next week, so stay tuned for the latest from England!

What’s the most memorable performance you’ve seen at an air show?
