Dash camera video shows Russian attack planes and helicopters at very low altitude over a highway. Again.

The Russian (and Eastern Europe) habit of having a camera in the car (a “dash cam”) results in interesting clips featuring insane stunts of Russian helicopter and fighter pilots.

The following one was posted on Youtube last month and shows both Su-25 Frogfoot aircraft and trailing Mil Mi-24 helicopters (most probably involved in a flyover or exercise) flying in close sequence near a highway, almost skirting light poles.

Considered that dash camera wide-angle lenses make objects in the scene look farther than they really are, the aircraft flying over the cars must have been really low….Russian style!

  1. Doesnt feel right that. Very tight formation for low altitude. Spacing is very exacting. Plus on the exactly same flight path as the hinds, although much faster….

  2. You see that yellow road sign just beyond the orange van parked on the right?
    Now look at the Su-25s: they vanish just behind the road sign…no small shapes in the distance unlike the shapes of the 2 hinds that we can still see (dimming) beyond the trees..
