On the news tonite:
Commentary says that a highly experienced Swedish pilot made a lowpass just a few meters over some Swedish paratroopers at 350km/h.
The pilot has regretted the stunt as he was grounded after the Swedish Air Force leadership saw the video.

Personally I think this was done quite a few months ago, -no snow or fall colors...


There is always a good reason to watch airplanes

There was a similar in the early 90's. An RAF Hercules was doing a low pass after cargo para drops at RAF Hullavington. A soldier from the drop zone party (47 AD regiment, i think) stood up on the top of the cab of the 4 tonne lorry. He was decapitated by the tail ramp which as you can see in this video is alot lower than the cockpit at this speed. His head ended up inside the airplane due to the turbulence around the tail.

THIS IS SILLY AND POTENTIALLY FATAL. Fly low but not directly over people - I always thought it was more impressive to fly beside people and wave.
