Boeing shows off the N. Charleston-made 787 and 737 Max 9 during the Paris Air Show

Same Dreamliner that served as a backdrop to Trump's Feb. visit

In a video published this week alongside the Paris Air Show, Boeing is showing off the nimble handling of the newest North Charleston-made Dreamliner variant alongside its newest short-range 737 model.

The 787-10 shown in the video appears to be the same one that served as the hulking backdrop to President Donald Trump's visit to the area in February. Today, the company also announced a larger version of the 737 MAX 9 shown in the video, the MAX 10. The video below speaks for itself, but it's impressive to see the company's massive long-haul jet carving through the air with its little brother 737. Be sure to check out the vertical take-off both planes demonstrate at the beginning of the tape.

Also note the fine print at the end, "Do not attempt." Something to keep in mind the next time you get the keys to a Dreamliner.
