This is the stunning moment a 737 jet soars into a near-vertical takeoff at the Farnborough International Airshow.
The Boeing aircraft speeds along the runway before turning almost 90 degrees as it takes off with its nose pointing towards the heavens.
Its steep angle was a showcase for the Boeing 737 MAX 7, a 172-seater plane expected to enter passenger service in early 2019.
The clip was filmed on Wednesday, the third day of the week-long Farnborough Airshow in Hampshire, which finishes today.

Taken from the side of the runway, the footage begins with what looks like a regular approach to take-off.
But as it leaves the ground the Boeing jet does not straighten out, instead curving its nose at a perilous angle towards the sky.
To the amazement of those watching on the ground it keeps climbing in a near-vertical position until it finally flattens out and drops in a more horizontal stance.
Farnborough’s airshow offers a glimpse of some of the many cutting-edge innovations in the aerospace industry.

Among the ambitious projects on display this year was an Aston Martin micro-plane, a three-seater craft, costing £3 million-£5 million, which would fly at speeds of up to 200mph.
The show began as the Royal Air Force Airshow, held in London from 1920 to 1937, before relocating to Radlett from 1946 to 1948 and later to Farnborough.
The event, held only in even-numbered years, is organized by Farnborough International Limited and has attracted more than 200,000 visitors in previous years.
Members of the public can visit on the Saturday and Sunday with tickets in the ‘runway enclosure’ costing £69.
