Reader A. M. recently came across my post from November last year showing an extremely low pass by a Harvard training aircraft over a group of Army trainees along South Africa's western coast. She e-mailed me to ask whether I knew anything about a very low pass by a Portuguese airliner during an air show in that country. She'd heard of it, but wanted to know whether it had really happened.
It most certainly did happen! An Airbus A310 of Portuguese national airline TAP performed several dangerously low passes at the 2007 Evora air show. Here are two video clips of the incident.
I don't know if they fired the pilot for that bit of insanity . . . but if he'd done that in the USA I imagine the FAA would have yanked his license at once, if not sooner!
