Lowest fly-by ever?

Extremely Low Flying Fighter Jet - Bing Videos

From what I can tell in the video it looks like the jet is literally 1 meter off the ground? The bystanders almost got hit with a wing tip!!!!

I can't tell what kind of plane that is or country of origin but props to the pilot, that was some pretty ballsy flying.

They're Argie FMA Pampas.

Just read a Empire of the Clouds: When Britain's Aircraft Ruled the World by James Hamilton-Paterson (Paperback - 5 May 2011)

Where he mentions that a Vulcan bomber on a joint ex with the yanks in the US desert training area got so low that it cut a long trough in the ground with one wing tip!!

anyone no more about this?

That's certainly low. Somewhere in the webosphere there's some footage of a trio of naughty French mirage at somewhere like Solenzara, and one of them is bloody low too.

Anyone got the photo of the Typhoon at Farnborough a few years ago that scorched the grass at the bottom of a loop? The giveaway is the canards at maximum alpha and the brown streak the pilot leaves when climbing out...

Is this the one?

I 'raise' you 1 x Buccanner. Apparently the Bucc could do this on a regular basis as it formed an air cushion under the aircraft that prevented it from stoving in at these heights.

Yup. Only gets to about 5 metres but at maximum raaaa as opposed to the argie trainer.
It looks a bit lower than 5 to me, but that might just be my wishful thinking. The third seems to pass between the fence on either side of the runway.

They get a lot lower over here, the A10 at Rammstein apparently flew a circuit in someones cellar, the Airbus team then had to top that by demonstrating the clipping of tree roots from the underside at the Habsheim airshow!

Just a couple of many video's on YouTube.

I think the thing with the Bucc was that the pilot could do this with his hands off the stick.

Does the A10 count? it was after Take Off.

That is quite low. Though I did see one do it similar, but there was a dip on the horizon from my point of view so it vanished and then re-appeared, quite freaky.
