Good God! Try something like that around New York City or Washington, D.C. and you're liable to have a hail of gunfire or worse, an air-to-air missile from an F-15 or F-16 directed at you if you don't respond to a radio hail quickly enough? What are some of these people thinking?

The rules in the UK are:
No aircraft can be flown within 500ft of any Person, Vehicle, Vessel or Structure, and not below 1500ft of a built up area (and in practice that means even the tiniest villages or random groups of houses).
The exception is if the low-flying is done for normal aviation operations, such as landings or takeoffs.
Either way, flying UNDER a bridge is 100% illegal.
