You can’t fly lower than this!
The following video, filmed by a car dash camera, shows a Ukrainian Mi-17 Hip helicopter buzzing the cars on a highway somewhere near Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine’s fourth largest town, in the central-eastern part of the country.
Ukrainian helicopters, especially Mi-24 Hind gunships supporting the war against pro-Russia separatists, mainly operate at very low altitude where they can be more effective but at the same time they become more vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire: several Hind helicopters and many other Ukrainian aircraft have been shot down by MANPADS (Man Portable Air Defense Systems) in eastern Ukrainian during clashes with Russia-backed militia.
H/T to Foxtrot Alpha for digging up this video
Looks like a training flight, he is using the road for navigation and stealth. They avoid flying near east ukraine now (MANPADs), up until now 6 mi-8/mi-17 “hip” were shot down, one destroyed on the ground and 3 damaged.
also one insane video of one low pass of a mig-29 of UkAF:
almost electrocuted :)
I think he’s flying IFR (“I Follow Road.”)
