Check this out. It looks like either one of two possibilities...<br><br><br><br>
1. This was either a test flight of the Airbus jet.<br><br><br><br>
2. The jet was trying to take-off, grabbed a little lift and as it started to get airborne, lost some of the lift and went horizontal. Then, it cught lift and goes up in a very steep incline.<br><br><br><br>
Either way, this thing is pretty versatile.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://www.donstoys.com/a319_start.mpg" target="_blank">http://www.donstoys.com/a319_start.mpg</a>

Just watching it made my stomach churn... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/sick.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":sick:"><br><br><br><br>
I would say answer 1 (test flight), because it barely gains height, until they pull up the nose. If there were technical problems, the pilot would have attempted an emergency landing before that. Seems to be a planned thing to me. But who knows - I sure am no expert. If it's an accident, I hope they made it.<br><br><br><br>
I'm so not into coasters etc. And in the military back in Europe they wanted to make a fighter pilot out of me. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/huh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":confused:">

I agree that it was more likely a test to show the versatility and climbing ability of this plane. Looking at it again, I notice the landing gear is raised just before it makes the sharp climb. Seems to me it was a controlled testflight.<br><br><br><br>
I personally love take-offs and landings when flying. It's boring once you get up there and level off.

OMG. I'm afraid to fly.. and seeing that video didn't help. I'm hoping that's only a test flight. Could you image being on that plane? Yikes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/dizzy2.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":dizzy:">

Incredible!!!<br><br>
I think it´s a test flight with an empty plane and only fuel for a short flight.<br><br>
Or: they want to sell the plane to ElAl - and they sure have use for these kinds of maneuvers.
