Now that's low flying!


The man standing beneath this US Marine Corps AV-8B Harrier II jet (not an F/A-18 Hornet, as the video title claims) is lucky to be alive! He didn't flinch as the aircraft flashed over him . . . but if that pilot had been only five or six feet out in his height estimation, he wouldn't have had a head left on his shoulders!

The guy in the video didn't flinch, but the cameraman sure did! :)

It's not a Harrier, either. It's a Mirage F1 (smaller intakes, less anhedral on the wings, refueling probe on the right in front of the cockpit instead of on the left beside it).

Dang! Still, could have improved it by looking up as the plane went over.
