Test pilots put the A380 through its paces at Farnborough Airshow


Key players from the international aerospace industry have gathered in Farnborough, Hampshire, to show off their products at the annual airshow.

The Airbus A380 'Super-Jumbo' aeroplane has been taking part in a seven minute flying display.

In the cockpit, Experimental Test Pilots Peter Chandler and Frank Chapman have been putting the plane through its paces.

They practised the display in a simulator in Toulouse, France and told the BBC what it is like to fly one of the world's largest passenger aeroplanes.
