I've seen that live. It is awe inspiring to see an F-14 fly by you and 600+ MPH at head level

Awesome vid, thanks for posting.

I remember the first time I was a UH-60 flying nap-of-the-earth I thought I was going to crap myself.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Low and fast is 10% skill and 90% cajones. I "knew a guy" that used to fly wingtip to wingtip with a friend up and down the Kankakee River below the treetop level. Long, long time ago. Sometimes he'd go canopy to canopy with his friend.

one time my buddy and I were flying with our students in 172's down to New Orleans for Mardi Gras...

were flying in a "flight of two" just so we could get in quicker and not be spaced out

so he's in front of me on my left and I'm trailing...he's talking to tower and i'm talkin to him on another freq, while monitoring the tower

we set up for the approach and as we get low he throws in the last of his flap without telling me...so I do the same except now we're REAL close...on top of that the runway is narrower than it looked...

we ended up in the flare and touched down, with my wing even with his tail, AND our wings were inside each other, so if he stopped too fast we would hit...i'm on the radio going "don't stop don't stop don't stop don't stop don't stop don't stop"

we pull of onto the taxiway and the tower guy says, "that was the best formation landing we've ever seen here."

"My friend" was on final to a major metropolitan airport when the tower advised "him" to do a 360 degree turn for spacing from another aircraft. "He" replied, "Would you like that vertical or horizontal?" After a slight wait the controller replied, "Horizontal, please.".
