Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

The first 40 secs are from the "top gun" movie and has nothing to do with reality. The rest, where it is on attack ranges, are probably ok, the low pass outside the range surely was reprimanded.

The (carrying, I assume) Warthog chose a low risk TO, ok also.

Well I would rate that number 2 placed flyby a lot higher, anyone wanting to control one of those at that altitude deserves a medal.

that I knew (would be ashamed if I didn't....) but some stunts give me the feeling 'what if....
'low fly-by' a couple of meters above the head of a mech?

A-10 fly-by was ok for me, they're build for it and it was under control

well, we all see things differently  hatsoff

In the 1980s at Soesterberg airbase I saw an F15 crash Knipoog
He made a very steep dive and tried to make a turn about 30 meters above the ground, he didnt make it though.
The plane simply dropped from the sky into the field next to the runway Knipoog

normally its fun to see specially because the plane wasnt damaged to badly and the pilot got out unharmed but the crowd tried to go to the plane instead of away from it.
There is nothing scarrier than being driven towards such an accident by a crowd if you want to go the other way Bedroefd
I was only thinking about the damn thing blowing up or the small tank with poisonous stuff. ( cant recall the name of it though)

Luck or skill is not the question, as the answer is obvious to me at least:

Flybys like this show basic aviator lack of skill to the utmost, I hope the (lucky: Had not to confront a imprudent homicide court martial) pilot got grounded forever.

As a FACman, I have an affinity for aircraft and their pilots. However, this affinity does not extend to those pilots who did not learn the lesson of the opening act of Operation Cobra during WW2. Air attacks should be made parallel to the front lines, not on the perpendicular of those lines. There was a particular Huey Cobra pilot during my tour of duty, who was approaching the limit of the Grunts he was supposed to be supporting patience, with his jet jockey ways. And came within minutes of receiving hostile fire from the troops he was supposed to be supporting, not scaring the shit out of. I took great pride in respectfully, deflating the egos of two USMC Cobra pilots  (Captains) some years later (20+) for that other pilots transgressions. I daresay, they performed their duties with a different perspective from that day forward.

Argentinians are known to have great pilots, but as you can see in the following vids there are also some extremely stupid ones when it comes to show off low flying skills.

First vid is a turbo-prop Pucara extremely low fly-by, the 2nd and third show the lawn mowing capacities of an IA 63 Pampa (from inside and outside).

Two more pilots that need to be grounded.
