Douglas C-47 Skytrain perfoms one of the lowest and craziest flybys ever

Jan 05 2014 - 5 Comments

The following video shows a Douglas C-47 Skytrain (military version of the DC-3 Dakota) performing a low flyby “at a private air strip no one around for miles and there was no dogs cats are birds harmed in the making of this video.”

Once again, an improvised and quite dangerous air display: most probably, you can’t fly a plane lower than this without crashing into the ground nor hitting the camera operator.

According to a user who commented the video on Youtube, the C-47 belongs to the Commemorative Air Force based in Texas but the color scheme and code (3A) worn by the Skytrain in the footage is different from those of the model currently flying with the CAF.
