Default Top 10 "Fly bys"

LowLevel Aviation sure is fun to watch!
Some of you may have seen this and some have not.



Pay particular attention to the (last one shown) low pass.

It happened during a Blue Angles event over San Francisco several years ago .
It was the pilot's last show with the team and he had nothing to lose.


Many of the boats in the bay lost windows to the Sonic Blast.

Amazing what those guys can do, and how well they control the aircraft at that level.

Gives me chills every time I see this stuff. Love the Blue Angels in Annapolis and the air show in OC.

# 2 was a really crazy, too big to do that stuff. Big planes don't respond like fighters - WOW My brother is a pilot, he'll get a kick out of it. Thanks

Pure respect for those guys. #3 had to be pretty high on the brown pants scale for the guy standing there.

I wish I had the camera on for a couple jets working the 102 Tower "C" out of Oregon Inlet 3 tears ago. We could see the pilots looking at us and smell the fuel when they made low low passes. That $h!t is loud!!! Here's a clip I saw that seems to fit the thread.

Lower than a "Fly By"

Glad no one was fishing there.

Too have seen those twin exhaust pipes up close is unforgettable..... I never saw one coming but I've seen several leave before I ever knew that they were there.

I lived near this airport in St. Maarten for a short while. Seeing the 747 come in and take off was a site to see for sure.

So were the Hungarian, Russian, and Czech strippers

Jose Wejebe was fishing with some Blue Angel pilots a few years ago and some of the Angels did a fly-by on the Spanish Fly. Can't find the link.

Awesome fly-by's in that 1st link!

I'm fortunate enough to spend two weeks there every January, mandatory daily stop at the bar at either end of Maho Beach to watch the planes.
Haven't been to the Bada Bing yet but have seen some of the talent on various beaches.
