The Airbus A350-1000 -- the largest jet in the A350 family -- took to the air over the Paris Airshow this week to show just what it's capable of when it's not laden down with passengers, luggage and a full tank of heavy fuel.

With a much lower flying weight than usual, the A350-1000 can fly much more aggressively, banking hard and swooping in ways that would normally be uncomfortable for any passengers on board.

It's built using lighter weight materials, including carbon fibre, to keep the weight down and therefore use less fuel when flying.

The wheels come down just before landing.

It's fun to see such massive planes flying more aggressively than they ever would with passengers on board.
