Fly-by – now that’s low

  • This guy was risking the biscuit somewhat! The camera man flinched, for sure. The noise of a jet low-level can just about shake your brains out, having seen a Phantom do a low pass over 14 squadron, RAF Brüggen myself, I can vouch for that experience! Then again standing under a Vulcan with four Olympus engines roaring at max dry-heat (no after-burner) is louder, so loud in fact your fillings will probably fall out. I lost partial hearing in one ear due to that experience, even with a headset on


  • Look carefully and you’ll see the aircraft has it’s airbrake extended (under the belly)
