Airbus A350s fly in fighter-jet formation

Airbus has rolled out a new fleet of A350 XWBs and to celebrate they have made them do something really rather wonderful.

Five of them were sent to the skies in a tight, fighter-jet formation, performing the kind of tricks you usually only see from the Red Arrows.

They moved from the diamond formation to the echelon formation and finally the arrow formation.

Check out the video to see these amazing planes in action.
