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.
