Yikes! Fighter Jet Flies So Low It Barely Misses Air Show Spectators

Air show spectators in England got a shock when a fighter jet coming in for landing flew so low over their heads that it barely missed a perimeter fence — and the people on the ground.

Video posted online shows a Typhoon jet kicking up debris as it passes overhead at last week’s Royal Air Force Waddington Air Show. On the ground, spectators shriek and laugh in surprise.

“Well this came as a shock, the rate of descent was so quick,” YouTube user bobsurgranny posted. “Either very skilled or very lucky, you decide…I’m saying SKILL!”

In a statement, the RAF called the landing “completely normal and within all normal parameters.”

“Individuals placing themselves under the flight path of aircraft that operate hugely powerful jet engines should not be surprised if they experience jet wash, nevertheless, the RAF apologizes for any inconvenience caused,” the statement said.
