Ukrainian Su-25 Frogfoot attack planes fly at insanely low altitude, buzz airport tower!

Ukrainian Air Force Su-25s as you have never seen them before!

The following video is pretty impressive.

It shows Ukrainian Air Force Su-25s flying at treetop altitude over Melitopol airbase, in southeastern Ukraine and nearby, in February 2015.

The Frogfoot jets can be seen, from the inside and outside, perform low passes (not as low as the Libyan Mig-23 we have shown here) among the parked Il-76 cargo planes, release flares, fire rockets and even buzz the tower.

Although the Su-25 pilots have to fly at very low-level (where they can be particularly vulnerable to MANPADS as those in the hands of pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine) to perform their Close Air Support missions, some of the passes seem to be a bit too risky!

Watch by yourself.
