Vague memory - isn't there a stunt B17 flyby where it buzzes the tower in the film 'Memphis Belle'?

Both # 2 and 3 were filmed in Chad.

#2 is a French Air Force KC-135 over the Moussoro range and #3 is a French Air Force Mirage F-1CT, probably over the Abéché airstrip.

The guy who stands in the middle of the airstrip is currently a LTC in the Foreign Legion...it was of course a stupid bet, he had told the pilot he would not bow his head....

I remember being at the British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch one year (I was so young I can't remember which year). They had a Harrier do a pre-race display.....came so low several hospitality tents lost their awnings, everything went flying, people diving for cover. I was in awe, never seen a Harrier before, but it left a lasting impression and have loved them ever since.

Flash, thanks for bringing this silly thread back down to earth so to speak....

showing off generally only achieves one thing - ending lives....

How unfortunate, did the crew survive ?

Doesn't look like they did in that mess.

I've never trusted a chopper with a single engine, especially over water.......
