On the first day of the Paris Air Show, aircraft from Boeing, Airbus and others perform low flybys and aerial stunts.
The highlight of the Paris Air Show is a flight display of several commercial and military aircraft.
Boeing's latest version of its popular 737 family made its official debut at the show. Its flyby was the top draw of the afternoon.
The Max 9 only made its first flight last April, but should enter service in 2018. The 737 was first produced 40 years ago.
The Max 9 will seat 180 to 200 passengers.
Without a planeload of passengers, the airliners take off at a steep angle.
Next up was the Airbus A380. Now 12 years old, it still draws a crowd.
The world's largest commercial airliner wasn't stodgy in the sky. It had some pretty sweet moves of its own.
The A380's landing gear has 22 wheels.
On its first pass over the airport, the wheels disappeared into the hull.
A slow pass over the runway allowed for a great photo opportunity.
After a few passes over the runway, it came in to land.
The Brazilian-made E195-E2 airliner seats between 120 and 144 passengers. It completed its maiden flight last March and is scheduled to enter service in 2019
It wasn't a barrel roll, but you won't experience this on your next flight to Chicago.
The aircraft had a wild paint scheme with a bird's head emblazoned on the nose.
Also built by Embraer, the KC-390 is a military transport that can also perform aerial refuelling.
The KC-390 first flew in 2015.
This particular KC-390 flies with the Brazilian Air Force.
The A321neo is part of Airbus's new-generation A320 family aircraft.
It can seat between 206 and 240 passengers.
It made its first flight in February 2016.
The first deliveries to airline customers started in May.
The Dassault Rafale preceded the commercial airliners with some fantastic maneuvers.
The French-built fighter plane first flew in 1986.
The A400M is a heavy military transport for troops and equipment.
First built in 2009, The A400M is designed as a heavy military transport for troops and equipment.
It can carry 30 tons and can operate from rough runways.
It may look like it just lumbers along, but the A400M definitely has its moves.
The Magistar is a French jet trainer aircraft.
It flew to a dizzying height before looping back to Earth.
The smoke trail lasted almost until the Magister landed.
