This is one crazy archive video showing the crop dusters of Columbia back in the ’50s. Spraying cotton was quite a business back then, but what really stands out is the incredible maneuvers these pilots performed with their little Piper Cubs to spread the load evenly. No wonder they were called daredevil aerial crop dusters… check it out!

Daredevil crop dusters

Very cool video filmed by the guys at Jones Air, Australia. Great images showing the dangers but also the thrills of aerial crop dusting. This job requires not only great skill but also a lot of attention, one of the main reasons this profession has such a high number of fatal accidents is the high number of power lines these pilots must avoid while trying to get the best coverage possible, and that is just during the day. Imagine what these guys face during night flying… Enjoy the Air Tractors and their pilots at work in this great aerial crop dusting video.

Red Bull Speed Run

The Red Bull Speed Run is probably the ultimate competition for the hang gliding adrenaline junkie. Get as fast as you can as low as you can through a series of gates… a recipe for a fantastic show. Lots of cool low passes, water skimming, loops and more crazy action performed by these professional dare devils.

Six years of hang gliding at Point of the Mountain, Utah compressed in a few minutes of intense video. To me, this is one of the best hang gliding videos out there. The stuff these guys do is absolutely crazy but seems they have a lot of fun and that’s what flying should be all about… hanging out and having fun with your mates. This is absolutely a must see video, whether you are or aren’t a fan of the hang gliders.

The helicopter in question is an Aerospatiale SA330 Puma. The pilot in question is French and if you have visited this site before, you probably know by now that if the words insane, helicopter, Puma and French are thrown in together it can only mean one thing: somewhere in Chad this French pilot had a very good time while at the same time entertaining the guys on the ground. Lucky guys!!! For the rest of us couch potatoes, well… at least we have one very impressive video with this truly crazy low level pass.

Insane helicopter fly-by

These are probably some of the best low passes ever. And, if it is about low level action, then it’s the French flying their Mirage F1s as crazy as humanly possible over the sands of Chad. Enjoy!

Coolest low level passes ever!

The French Air Force keeps a number of units in Chad. Because of the nature of the missions, the old Aerospatiale SA 330 Puma and Dassault Mirage F1 are stationed there. Pilots often call these “leisure missions” because they pretty much get to do stuff they wouldn’t normally do… like flying extremely low and generally having lots of fun. Check out the videos of the “Crazy Boys” over Chad.
