Video shows Su-24 Fencer attack plane perform an insane low-level flyby at unknown airbase

Su-24 Fencer buzzes some heads at an unknown airbase

The following video shows a Su-24 attack plane (serving with the Russian and Ukrainian air forces and a few other operators) performing a really low pass on some observers grouped on the apron of an unknown airbase.

Although it was posted on Liveleak under the Channel “Ukraine”, the aircraft may not belong to the Ukrainian Air Force: the Su-24 seems to sport a camouflaged color scheme, whereas Ukrainian Fencers are painted with a light grey paint scheme.

There are many videos on the web showing Su-24s doing what they do best: flying at ultra-low altitude.

In April this year, 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 Al Clark for finding the video and posting link on Youtube.
