Good day everyone!
I didn't find this anywhere else but if it is a repeat I apologize. Now I know that we have all seen the INSANELY and dangerously low pass of the TAP A310 but here's one of a 747 crew trying something a bit similar... Thoughts?

Jeeez!

That was lower that even I felt comfortable with.
Would be awesome to see in real life though  biggrin 

JG  Yeah sure



First Class passengers are my favourites. They can't get any further forward without an ATPL.

Close, but not that close imo.

Impressive though. Reminds me of the TAP A310(?) which did a low pass a few years back. Now that was awesome to watch.

This was a very low pass by a 744 but over the sea at the Airbourne 2007 Air Show:

Wow, what a dramatic pass and climb. I think this pass is even lower, granted in a smaller 747SP. There are three passes in the video clip, the third being the lowest:

Lower then would be acccepted in the west. Looking at the clip it seems a very controlled pass though. He comes in smoothly, radio attitude is exact and the pilot does a pitch up before the turning.

Beautiful pass!!!! That turn looked amazing especially how quick that 747 can roll out. That was fairly close to the ground however I still dont think it was as close as the wingtip got on that A310 airshow flyby.

That plane is empty, a 747 is just as maneuverable as any other aircraft when it's empty. But still impressive

Not to be picky, but South America isn't "east" - it's most definitely in the western hemisphere. It just be that Aerosur puts a lot more trust in their 747 pilots than say... Cathay Pacific?

And that would be be the only acceptable instance where saying "Weee, this is fun" is appropriate cockpit talk below 10k'!

What a great price of footage, right up there with the TAP A 310.

I especially enjoyed what one guy yelled out at about 42 seconds into the clip.

I wish I knew the full translation, but I know I heard "bitch" in there somewhere! LOL

The 743 pass was low... nice roll spoilers on the left wing as it turned at that altitude...

The 74SP... not as low or as low but... flapless...

Nuts... time for me to take my anti-depressants I think...

Nice low pass, but I have to say that they Aerosur is the ugliest 747 I have ever seen.

I did not see a problem with it. The plane was obviously empty accept for the crew so it was pretty light. Plus, there may have been a bit of an optical illusion. The plane may not have been quite as close to the ground as it appeared to be. Also, I am sure that the airline would have only had an experienced pilot fly that for that show. Until I learn of a good reason, I will trust the pilots ability.

But I'll add (although clearly not a 747) this:
