They were the idiots standing at the end of the runway where the plane was landing.

Not quite a standard approach. From what the pilot did with the throttle and the pitch adjustment there, I really don't think he meant to come in -quite- that low either.

Only if you watched it until the very end did you understand. These idiots were standing 50 feet from the end of a runway. That wasn't a fly-by; it was a landing. Jets are understandably close to the terrain when they come in for a landing. The extended landing gear was a clue from the very start.

I'm guessing you now have enough cash to take flight lessons?
Go for it.
Doesn't matter that it isn't a fighter jet. Just get the thrill of flying.

If I had the time I'd do something similar.

Interesting idea, but seems like a slippery slope. First it's flying lessons, then i'm going to want a plane, then i'll want a larger house with attached hangar and runway, then i'm going to want young women to fly around in my plane. Mrs. jankyboy might not be hip to the idea.

Single seat aircraft solves that problem.

Heck, why not get one of these:

My personal preference would be the full scale Fokker DR-1 triplane.

either that or end up as chopped human. 

don't know if its the same crash as the photo, but i remember seeing a video of the Sknyliv disaster, with a suhkoi crashing and its wing slicing thru the crowd. the aftermath photos showed a bunch of body parts... (77 dead, 500+ injured)

Lipo: They were the idiots standing at the end of the runway where the plane was landing.


They're actually on the main road coming out of Lincoln. http://goo.gl/maps/sCOz6

It's stupidly close to the runway and they usually close the road to cars/high sided vehicles when a plane is landing. It's pretty common for plane spotters to be on there and there's also a café and viewing gallery a few yards down the road. The plane is just flying slightly lower than it should be.

Indeed. I took about 50 hours of leasons in a helicopter over 30 years ago then realised that I'd have to pay for the test and the license. Then I'd need to buy a helicopter. Living in London, where the hell do you park the thing?

Just basing off what I saw, I'd hazard he's less than that  off the ground, more like 3-4 feet, which is actually kind of dangerous for the plane as well... All he'd have to do is suck something metallic off of the ground into his intake and then all hell would break loose...

My dad had to do FOD walkdowns for the B1's and such when he worked for the Air Force in Oklahoma... Nothing could be on the runway for their testing purposes...

More likely he saw the idiots at the end of the runway and decided to make some dirty underwear.

This reminds me of a story I read back in the early 80s when I was a cadet in the CAP. (Civil Air Patrol). This 17 yo kid was involved in a crash at an intersection with another car. Since there were no visual obstructions for many yards in either direction, the cop asked the kid why he didn't even apply the brakes as there were no skid marks on the pavement from his car. The teen replied that he was a pilot and had been flying planes (I guess illegally, but hey...) since he was 13 years old. When he was approaching the intersection and realized the other car was not going to stop, he had a completely natural reaction... he pulled up.

/really enjoyed my time in the CAP... we had dogfights with 172s and Bonanza 'F's all the time
//we also had a KingAir 10 seater that we would fly to events and stuff. it was like a camper in the air

payattention: The teen replied that he was a pilot and had been flying planes (I guess illegally, but hey...) since he was 13 years old.


There is no lower age limit that I'm aware of to have your hands on the controls and actually flying the plane.  You just have to have a licensed pilot in the cockpit with you who is responsible.  So it's perfectly conceivable that a 17 year old could have been flying since 13.

/Story smells like apocryphal bullshiat, though.

"If the pilot's good, see, I mean if he's really sharp, he can barrel that baby in so low, I mean you ought to see it sometime. It's a sight! So a big plane like a 52, VAROOM! There's jet exhaust frying chickens in the barnyard!"

Either that, or your plane will have machine guns:

Nice, but he wanted to be a jet jock. So he should look at a Aero L-39. Controller has more than a few, as does Trade-a-plane. Of course, they are a bit pricier than what you posted. But they have good parts availability and plenty of stateside mechanics who can work on them. Of course, it all depends on his budget for such things. Low end budget, stick with the old doped fabric kites. But if you have the bank account to spare, there are many other options. Personal favorite (that I have flown to date) is a Diamond DA20 C-1 Katana. They are a joy to fly, and very easy to learn in.

/The Katanas I trained in were N791ES, N792ES, and N793ES.

So, just for statistics, was he wearing a seatbelt or thrown clear (the pilot)?

Eventually he'll not only crease is it he'll put in a divot.  A deep, smoky, burning divot.  That is no longer skill, it's luck.  One bit of FOD (in this case a damn clump of grass), one blip of power loss, a micro miss adjustment in the trim and he's plowing a furrow.

As the saying goes there are old pilots, and there are old pilots but rarely do you find a old, bold pilot.
