Watch this: How insanely low you can fly a civilian jet liner!

Oct 29 2013 - 4 Comments

It seems like low level flying in Argentina is not limited to military fighter jets, trainers or cargo planes.

The images in this post were taken on Dec. 12, 2007 when, for the 100 años de la aviación civil argentina (100 years of Argentine Civil Aviation), a Boeing 737-500 “LV-BEO” belonging to the Aerolineas Argentinas performed a really low flyby over the Aeroparque at Buenos Aires.

Photographs were taken by an accompanying IA-63 Pampa jet trainer that escorted the jet liner along with a Learjet.

    My friends,

    Please check out the first seconds of this video of a VERY low pass of a Airbus A320.

    It was recorded in the same year, 2007 at the Evora bi annual air show, Portugal.

    Back in the late 80’s and early 90’s in Brazil two companies used to perform some pretty low flights during airshows. Both companies are now defunct (VASP and VARIG)
