You know that guy is coming in low when ducking goes from reflex to pretty good idea.

You really have to trust someone to stand there for that. Of course, if it went wrong for the buzzee, he'd never know it.

I agree with ED........you know that pilot had no intention of being that low.....how did he maintain 8 feet, or thereabouts, with no variation? Guy could have been left headless....even if he is brainless.

Actually, the aircraft is probably at about 25 to 30 ft. altitude when it passes over the guy standing in the middle of the frame and the camera man, it only appears like it is at 8 ft. or so. How do I know this? having been buzzed in convoy and on foot I have seen this live.

I love the way the aircraft grows from a black speck on the horizon to passing overhead in just a few seconds. I was always impressed at that and I always wondered, when this happened to us infantry types, how the hell does anybody shoot that down?
