Russian Su-24 Fencer ultra low flyby on highway as seen from the cockpit

Russian Air Force Su-24 pilots like low level flying. And here’s a video that shows one of their treetop altitude missions from inside the cockpit.

Here’s the latest footage coming from Russia showing Su-24s flyng a training mission following a highway at low level.

Unlike previous videos, were Fencer’s low passes were filmed from the ground, this shows you how it feels like to fly at ultra-low altitude in a Russian attack plane.

In other countries, this kind of training is mainly performed out of populated areas. In Russia, pilots can buzz car and trucks. Let’s hope no driver gets distracted by the fast moving and noisy combat plane.

Last month, a Russian Su-24MR, flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, the U.S. Navy destroyer operating in the Black Sea following the crisis in Ukraine, a show of force considered  “provocative and inconsistent with international agreements.”

H/T to Brian Ostrander for pointing us to the video!
