Watch this scary video of a Ukrainian Su-27 almost crashing into the ground while performing yet another insane low pass

This time a Flanker gets a handful of meters from the ground and a bystander…

Ukrainian Air Force pilots love flying low and be filmed in the process.

In the last couple of years we have published several videos showing pretty dangerous low passes: a Su-25 Frogfoot buzzing a group of female soldiers posing for a photograph, another one performing a low passage along a taxiway of a military airfield in northwestern Ukraine, a 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 the latest chapter of the low pass sage: a Su-27 flying really low over a group of people after performing a low approach at an airbase in Ukraine.

The Flankers can be seen approaching the runway then break: one of the aircraft turns left towards the apron, gets dangerously close to the ground before climbing towards the cameraman.

Ukrainian Flankers were among the highlights of the recent Malta International Airshow.
