It’s a bold claim that this video captured the lowest fly-by ever, but considering this Argentinian jet looks just several feet from the ground, it’s hard to imagine anyone besting it.
So taking the poster’s word for it, above is a frightening view of the lowest fly-by ever. Below, we see a cockpit view as the Argentinian FMA IA 63 jet descends from the sky to buzz a group of people standing on a landing strip.
It begs the question: Would you rather be piloting such a maneuver or witnessing it from the ground?
For the sake of safety — and avoiding hearing loss — we’d take a spot in the pilot’s seat over ducking for cover.
