And it wasn't doing either, in either of the clips.

You are right, it wasn't, even though the pilot was attempting just that.
It's not a near miss it's a near hit!!

Could it be that seeing such a manouvere in a passenger aircraft has told our brains that this is dangerous and reckless because we are not used to seeing these planes perform in this manner??

If it was an F14 - nobody would care.

Think about it.
