Be neat to see the Flight Display on the instrument panel to see the numbers.

No, but I did that in an F-18 once. I still say they aren't planes, you're simply steering a rocket.

I would love to see that video from the side with something in the background for perspective.

There's no way they are taking a plane full of passengers on that kind of ascent.

I was in Hilton Head at the Harbor Town golf tourney this past spring and on Sunday Boeing did a fly over with the 787. Man that thing put on a show! He was so close to doing a barrel roll with that baby. Everyone was yelling for that pilot to turn it over. Awesome. Boeing has a plant in Charleston I believe and the locals were saying they were having a hard time selling the 787. I would ride it in a heartbeat.

Most airliners will climb out like that empty.

Gives new meaning to 'For your safety be sure to secure your belongings before takeoff'.

standard combat departure, did that for airshow departure often in the KC-10A.
I'm sure atcfris has seen it more than once.
Was our standard departure going out of Mogadishu (sp), also all in-country departures out of the middle east were like that.
Lite C-130 departures were just as cool.

It said "experimental" next to the door.

If you'll notice, that's the most modern version of the 737. It's carrying a very small load of fuel, and the factory pilot knows every limitation of the aircraft. I doubt it even had seats installed.

I've seen the same type flight of the 787 Dreamliner, and it's a very overpowered aircraft.

Put 200 people and a full load of fuel in an airliner and you'll never see such performance flights.

I once saw a B-1 bomber do a fly by at an air show. He was flying 450 knots at 100' and pulled up--doing a barrel roll. It was a very impressive move for such a large craft. Think how great that airplane would have been if Jimmy Carter didn't cut the budget for the big, big supersonic engines?

I've got a close friend that was the SR71 pilot that set the Pacific to Atlantic speed run. You ought to hear his tales of flying.
