Low Flypast:

Catch the one of the KC 135
We all remember Tom Cruise in the Movie "TOP GUN" when he makes a low
passnear the control tower and causes an officer to spill coffee down his shirt.
Well here are short clips of the top 10 low pass flybys ever filmed ... and
of course for nostalgia, let's see that Top Gun low pass again.
Pay particular attention to the last shown low pass. It is number one. Watch
the halo of water around the plane. It happened during a Blue Angels event
over San Francisco several years ago. It was the pilot's last show with the
team and he had nothing to lose.
Many of the boats in the bay lost windows to the sonic blast. It's a kick to watch.
Number 3 was pretty impressive too. Click the link below:

A friend of mine was a Herc pilot and I've seen a still of him doing a low pass in Afgan - very impressive with such a large aircraft!

Cookee, it could have been an Air Despatch picture
the C130's out of Lyneham used to have 47 AD troop attached, not sure if its the same now they are at BZN?

F-15 COMBAT TRAINING
Comment from a fighter pilot:

"This is without reservation the best video I have ever viewed depicting air-to air combat."
The producer and photographer were able to show perspective of the entire arena in a way I've never seen.
This is as "real" as it could possibly be! When the pilot got into a scissors or Luffberry you can almost feel the g's!"

Taken at Kadena Air Force Base, Okinawa
