Caption says it's a fly by at an airshow. I've seen similar passes performed by a FedEx freighter and (many) military planes.

Southwest used to have a commercial during the 1970s in which a FA in a short skirt was walking towards a camera when a 737 buzzed overhead so low that it caused a few hairs to raise off her head. Cool commercial!

Think this one is real, if you look at the runway you can just about see the shadow of the 737, which i think would be particulary hard to do on photoshop edit.

Always one of my favorites too!

See it at: http://www.southwest.com/about_swa/advideo.html and I believe it's the first one at the top of the list, dated 1972....

In WW2 there was a desert based Hurricane pilot, his showpiece was to belt down the runway and at the point of take off rather than climb he would retract his gear, fly level for a bit and then climb.

Hooray for crazy pilots (as long as I'm not in there with him!)  Wink

I believe he was taking off and stayed low after gear retration.. Much safer than performing an approach with a gear up and then executing a fly-by!

Hi guys

Let me reassure you that it's very unlikely that this photo is faked. The photographer is one of Iceland's most known aviation photographer and I highly doubt that he would upload a faked photo. The pilot flying the aircraft was most probably Mr. Arngrimur Johannsson, the founder of Air Atlanta, who has been flying all kinds of aircrafts for decades and quite capable of making such a low pass.

The WN video was pretty impressive, (and hte 737 flying overhead was nice too Big grin)

you think that WN vid was trick videography? I mean, it was as low flyby ut that gal underneath didnt even flinch when the 737 roared over. Even if you Botoxed her entire forehead, she had to at least react when that plane flew over!
