Another insane Russian helicopter low altitude flyby

A Russian combat helicopter performs an impressive, quite dangerous, low pass.

Few days ago, we published an article about the fully armed Ukrainian Air Force Mig-29 performing an impressive and unusual show of force in eastern Ukraine where pro-Russia separatists blocked the rails.

The Kamov Ka-52 Alligator is an all-weather attack helicopter featuring the distinctive coaxial rotor system of the Kamov design bureau.

Although the combat helicopter, usually employed as an armed scout chopper, equips the Russian army since 1995, you don’t happen to see them around every day.

By the way a few were seen supporting the initial helicopter armada during the Russian invasion of Crimea last month.

For this reason any video showing this weird aircraft is quite interesting. Even more if the Alligator performs an impressive, dangerous pass at ultra-low altitude.
