Now that's what I call a fly-past: US Navy F18 streaks past apartment block

"Pictures of F-18 on edge !"

This is the moment a a US Navy pilot gave a shocked resident a very close look at his F18. The fighter/bomber streaked past an apartment block on the banks of the Detroit River at the weekend. It was part of a tactical demonstration fly-past to open a speedboat race in the North American city. Officials waived rules to allow the Navy flyers to swoop under 100ft along the waterway. The jets had flown in from the Naval Air Station Oceana in Virginia to put on a spectacular show for thousands of spectators. The Chrysler Jeep Superstores APBA Gold Cup...

Crazy Dutch pilots in Afghanistan. Notice the next to last fly-by... The cockpit is actually lower than the video camera taking the video.

Awesome. (http://www.metacafe.com/watch/2325593/f_16_low_pass/)

I love seeing any military aircraft fly-by.

I love seeing any military aircraft fly-by. An F-16 fully loaded with ordinance at just below speed of sound kicking up sand contrails !
