The plane with a case of mistaken identity. This 76,500 kg turboprop transport aircraft seems to think it's a fighter jet.
To reinforce its point, it made a straight up vertical takeoff at RIAT this year. After seeing this display multiple times, I can confirm that the A400M is definitely a fighter jet in disguise. Case closed.
To give a bit of context, the horizon has not been adjusted in any of these shots. Maybe that's most impressive for the last two shots, where the aircraft is heading directly upwards over my head.
