New video shows a Ukrainian Frogfoot performing an insane low pass!!
Reportedly filmed at Lutsk airbase, the clip below shows a Ukrainian Air Force Su-25 performing a low passage along a taxiway of the military airfield in northwestern Ukraine.
According to the user who uploaded the footage the aircraft was flying at less than 1 meter of altitude, even though the jet was probably a bit higher (someone says 2.5 – 3 mt).
It’s not the first time Ukrainian pilots fly low and fast and get filmed. In the past we have reported about the Mig-29 overflying pro-Russia separatist blocking rails at very low altitude, an Ilyushin Il-76 buzzing some Su-25s and Frogfoots returning the favor while buzzing the tower, and also an Mi-17 helicopter flying among the cars on a highway.
Generally speaking Su-25 pilots are trained to fly at very low-altitude (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. Still, this seems to be a bit too low!
