Get ready for your ears to pop and your stomach to sink just watching this video of the new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner performing a near-vertical takeoff.

The Vietnam Airlines-branded model demonstrates the passenger plane's remarkably agility with a series of graceful maneuvers in the video that the company released as a preview for the 2015 Paris Air Show.

If these aerial antics make you want to keep your feet firmly on the ground, don't worry—actual commercial flights will make use of a slightly more gradual ascent.
