Very low flyby of jet trainer

While not a plane crash, the following event certainly has more than its fair share of risk. The following videos feature several views of a very, very low level flyby of an Argentinean FMA IA 63 Pampa jet trainer. The lowest pass was about three feet (one meter) off the ground, and passed very close to a group of observers on the ground. It is unclear when the flight took place, but the early uploads on YouTube were in the first week of June 2011. By luck, skill, or the grace of God, no aircraft or people were apparently hurt during these flybys.
