wow, that's low!!

I grew up on a small island in Scotland where we had low flying Tornados blasting across the island regularly. One of them was following the terrain, and was climbing over a crest and hit the chimney of one of the houses!!!

A Jag only just recently did that and tore its wing tip off at 54 feet (which was the height of the lamp post he hit). He was one very lucky bugger to keep the jet under control just abd be able to land it. His court martial is still on going i believe

when i was a kid back in the 60's on a farm in western NSW we were regularly buzzed by RAAF Dassault Mirage III's and they were well below roof height my estimate would be no more than 10 metres off the ground and often banking at that altitude

i am sure they were not menat to be doing it http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

about 5 years later the F111's turned up with their much vaunted terrain following radar but the F111's actually flew higher than the Mirage III's

Jetbuff:

1645.92m might be more precise than 16.4m, but it's a whole lot less accurate. Since when was 54ft a greater distance than 1‚Ĺ KILOMETRES?

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif

My bid is 16.4592 assuming we're talking English Imperial feet.

If it's 54 US survey feet then that's 16.4592324 metres.

54 Cape feet: 17.0023374m

54 geodetic Cape feet: 17.00220105m


All of those altidudes are impressive in a Jaguar.

I remember an "incident" with a pair of Mirage F1 during a travel to the beach when I was a kid.
We were near Los Llanos airbase (Albacete, Spain) when suddenly two of those #@$%! Mirages appeared flying very low crossing our path through the road. They didn't passed right over us, but our car began to balancing and I thought that we were going to overturn.
My father had to stop the car in the border of the road because my mother went to pieces (is this expression OK?)! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

A year or two back someone posted an image of a car that had been hit by a low flying Tornado in the middle east somewhere. The roof was crushed about 20-25cm below factory height. The Tornado had been using the road for a nav aid and was flying a foot or so lower than he thought http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

This isn't funny at all. Having spent a lot of hours on flightlines, if some irresponsible idiot of a pilot placed people's lives in danger like that, I would personally seek him out and punch him in his stupid face.

I 100% agree.

Just few years ago, in the mountains north of Italy, some guys on a USAF Prowler were flying far too low according to their orders and to any international law.
They deliberately passed UNDER the cables of a cableway just for fun, according to the cockpit recordings.
Doing so, they cut the cable of the cableway with the aircraft's fin.
The cabin fell and crashed on the ground, killing some &gt;20 people who where just going to ski.
The pilots were NOT persecuted by USAF tribunals, and USA did not let them being judjed in Italy for murder.

Flying low near inhabited places is NOT funny.
It is not allowed, unless being part of an aerobatic airshow, done on proper areas and by the right guys.
Those kind of cowboys need just to get some tranquillizer pills.

Note that this is NEITHER an anti-USA NOR a flaming post. I just pretend to let people know what's right and what's not.
