French looow flying...

Let us not forget the Dambusters did it at 60ft in the dark in a four engine heavy bomber whilst Eric was shooting at them having flown for 4 hours at 100 ft to get there.

Now that is scary

Oh for a real navy with a real air arm. Buccaneer pilots used to be the real low level guys.

docrichard's link of the KC135 (if that's what it is) begs the question of the conspiracy nuts who say a plane can't fly that fast that low because of some aerodynamic effect so a plane didn't hit the Pentagon. That plane is going faster than take off speed. Then the fighter jocks are really shifting, really low!

Sorry, conspiracy kno88ers, my pet dislike. Seadog dismounts hobby horse and takes medication.

Yes, but unfortuantly they were too busy to post it on youtube...

Of course they can fly fast and low, it's called ground effect.
I knew they could fly fast and low before any of the vids posted here and I'd heard the expression 'ground effect'. The Lynx film is impressive but ladies prefer fighter pilots. (So fighter pilots and ladies tell me).
