No it's not. coz he can turn with out climbing, And there is no ground effect on the water.
Planes are a rush...............imagine that then some fekkers start unloading a load of AK47's into the air just in front of you, exciting ....just a tad
There is a pic from a speed camera that a guy set off on a fly past, caputured the back end of the jet nicley, not that people do that sort of thing

I'll try and find the speed camera pic it's on the net somewhere.
I remember back in the early 90's flying around East Texas for 3 months on forestry work & the party piece was to fly and just brush the trees with the underside of the wings , could only do it with something wit retractable gear though, I had a fekken baby the first time a guy did it !!!! Oh & out of hunting season as the rifles did tend to go skyward

I'm sorry you're going to have to explain that to me - how did those great big Russian Ekranoplan things work then?

I may be completely wrong but does he mean there are no hills to sneak up on you and catch you out?

In this video, there was no visible signs on the waters surface to suggest ground effect was taking place, therefore it probably wasn't, therefore it wasn't that low.

The only exception in that vid is when the rear facing camera in the cockpit shows a glimps of disturbance on the surface when the plane 'pulls up' hard from level flight over the water, but that could have been jet thrust rather than ground effect.

I see Jon - the way it was worded I thought he was saying ground effect didn't exist on water and not that the planes were too high for it.

Thats the way I read it too which is why I thought ground effect was the effect of the ground going up and down making it difficult to fly low where as water (on a nice calm day and near the shore) is generally flat (ish )

Johnny Boat Dude, I think I know what you mean but one of your graphics would surely help.
