Default skill or almost tragedy

Incoming! Low-flying fighter jet scares air-show spectators

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/sideshow...3184.html?vp=1

I watched this with the wife a few times, at about 13 seconds in if you can pause it at the exact moment the running gear is over the birm wall I think he is less than three feet at the gear and a couple feet at the ass.

I think this guy being a show off almost made a tragedy occur.

Do you think it was skill or a close call by a show off.

Show off = 100%!

Now if you think about this on another approach (pun intended) on a carrier with a hook, the pilot would be trained to grab cable in such a manor.

OK not in that manor at all as it would be against training protocols with objects but for distances maybe? Still on a razors edge either way.

Probably not meant to get that close but skill kept it from becoming a fatal accident imo

That would pucker up the 'ol butthole just a little bit
