My GUESS is, (unless it is photo-shopped), the Lanc with 3 feathered is in the process of a gear up landing, not a low pass.  Seems pretty reckless to do a low pass intentionally with three shut down.  Not trying to be pedantic, just pointing it out.

Su-30 demo bird. Duck!!! :o






Had to post this old gag too!
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

Not quite that fast, but I do have a REAL picture of the captain of HMS Ambuscade water-skiing across the equator, towed behind the torpedo-decoy winch..... ;D :thumbsup:

The infamous Omani Jaguar delivery flight flypast. Not a good vid but they sure are low and FAST!

Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Looks more like an aborted landing to me


The French like going low. Almost had my hair trimmed by an AS 550 when i was in France. That was not close, that was insanely close.

I think the Jags and the KC-135 are the best vids so far. Most impressive. :thumbsup:

Possibly, but it's also a classic airshow manouvere.  The Vulcan comes in very low over the runway, then roates hard & may wingover too.  You get to hear that howl from the Olympus engines as they propel the Vulcan skyborne.

I was trying to find footage or a pic of the Vulcan at very low level as these girls could (& would) go down to near treetop height.
