The pilot was probably trying to land until he noticed there were two idiots on the runway.
 
2013-01-22 12:22:06 AM
I don't want to hear the pilot biatch when the FAA revokes his license.
 
2013-01-22 12:26:59 AM
Quite a screamer but at least kept the camera going and pointed up.  Thank you.

That's what it looked like.
No pilot is going to risk his plane and his life to prank some idiot.
Also, that type of plane is most often owned by older, more experienced pilots.

Sim Tree: Why are they driving their segways on a runway?


Because runways are long and people are lazy. Typical decent runways that can handle some commercial traffic are at least a mile in length.

If you mean why are they out there at all, they were out there so their buddy could blast by them in an insanely low pass at 200kts+ with the smoke on in his Pitts.
 
2013-01-22 01:57:41 AM
I dont know about the pilot- he was releasing smoke the whole way down the runway, and up to about 300 feet or so- you can see it cut off.
It might have been an airshow and these two idiots just went there, but- frankly i am puzzled. good vid tho

You've never played GTA. I'd totally risk life and limb just for the chance to really punch it. down the middle of a runway.

As close as he was to the idiot on the runway, it looks like he barely missed the cameraman, too:

Well yeah, you being "a man of action" and all, and not a "bottom feeder", I could see that.
Try reality some time.
My bet, is that you really are that guy.
A living cliche, who still lives with mom, doesn't get out much, but doesn't care, because everyone else, is way below his standards.

"I'd totally risk life and limb just for the chance to really punch it. down the middle of a runway."
Obviously, you've never worked at an airport, or have any experience in aviation.
Real life is not GTA, however, you have the option to "really punch it. down the middle of a runway " at a variety of locations.

But do the world, and yourself a favor though, by smashing into a bridge abutment at 100MPH on the way to the airport.
Nobody wants to be a part of your fantasies.

I'm going to call BS on the "two feet away" thing. There's at least a good 3 yards between the guy and the plane.

Lucky once, cocksure twice, dead the third time.

Also, airplanes performing a go-around (for an aborted landing) don't have to swerve. You just pull back on the yoke gently and gain altitude. Especially at that speed.

He was coming in pretty fast for a landing and had the smoke on. I am going with it was a "hey yall watch this!" that almost ended very badly.

Nope. This was set up. I don't think they planned to be that close though.

Plane was not configured for landing, was not on runway centerline, and had the smoke generator running.

Intentional buzzing.

Seems that way. Also, he wasn't riding a Segway, he was doing a wheelie on a trike (the motorized kind).

wrong, try texas

so many people assume too much, so much anger for nothing

"The harrowing viral video of a biplane flying "within 2 feet of person" was shot last week on a Texas airport runway as an aeronautic stunt pilot flew sideways past a screaming camera operator.

As seen above, the 19-second clip--which was uploaded yesterday to YouTube--shows pilot Jason Newburg buzzing a member of Team Stunters, a Texas-based group that performs "streetbike stunt shows." Newburg, 43, is an "extreme aerobatic pilot" who operates Viper Airshows.

The video, titled "200mph Plane fly-by within 2 feet of person," was shot on the runway at Lancaster Airport, about 20 miles south of Dallas. In a Twitter post, a Team Stunters member reported that the footage was shot during a "practice session for upcoming shows."

Based on the screaming and squealing coming from the person holding the camera, he/she did not expect such a close call with the modified Pitts S2S biplane being flown by Newburg (seen at right).

Mark Divita, manager of the Lancaster Airport, said that he had not seen the video, so he could not comment on the fly-by's propriety (or whether Federal Aviation Administration officials would approve of the close call). Newburg, who holds a commercial pilot's license, did not respond to e-mail or phone messages. Team Stunters representatives did not reply to e-mail messages."

Arthur "Bud" Holland had a kid?
 
2013-01-23 01:11:30 AM
wasn't a segway or a motorized trike... it was a micro quad... 49cc for little kids to ride... or runway incursion retards.
