    I saw this youtube linked from gizmodo.com and just blows my mind that the pilot really got that low; I'm thinking it must have been unintentional.
    The text from the website (accuracy not guarnateed) lists the follwing description of this Argentinian pilot and the jet.

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pi-vawv4Bg0

    Hoping that I correctly embedded the video link. I'd really like to hear some thoughts from RL pilots on this video...Is it real? (it looks like it to me).

    Yep, that's pretty assinine if you ask me.

    EDIT: Sorry John, we crossed posts. I didn't mean the Spitfire vid but rather the original subject.

    Thanks for the input; that's one fly-by I wouldn't have wanted to be close to.

    The first one was all due to something being lost in translation over the radio. Someone called out "Flymo the grass" to the airfield gardeners, and the pilot picked it up as 'Fly low to the grass' ......... I'll get me coat !
