On the first day of Farnborough 2012, the Airbus 380 proved to be (almost) as maneuverable as a smaller, fast jet as it created impressive condensation clouds around its flight surfaces.

On Day 2, it did it again.

Here’s an image showing the amazing steep take off of the Malaysia Airlines Airbus 380, taken by The Aviationist’s photographer Giovanni Maduli on Jul. 10.

Ok, it’s not even comparable to an F-15, but its agility is stunning.
