Another crazy low pass.

Here’s another chapter in the Ukrainian Air Force low pass saga.

After the the Mig-29 overflying pro-Russia separatist blocking rails, an Ilyushin Il-76 buzzing some Su-25s and Frogfoots returning the favor while buzzing the tower, an Mi-17 helicopter flying among the cars on a highway and another fully armed Mig-29 Fulcrum in the livery of the Ukrainian Falcons aerobatic display team flying over an apron at an airbase in Ukraine, here’s a Su-25 flying low, really low, over the heads of a group of female soldiers posing for a photograph.

What makes the maneuver really dangerous, is not the “flyover,” but the low-level victory aileron roll the Frogfoot performs after the low pass: aerobatic maneuvers at low altitude can be extremely risky, if not performed by experienced, skilled pilots.
