Another great video from the French. This time it’s the Gazelle helicopter in what appears to be a low altitude training exercise. These low level flights are quite intense… the helicopter feels very tight, very responsive and the rush of seeing the ground pass under you at high speed is quite spectacular.

Very relaxing video with great music too. Enjoy this fantastic helicopter ride in Hawaii!

Starfighter

The F-104 Starfighter is a truly legendary plane. Some remember the good, some remember the bad… anyway this red Starfighter performing some high speed low passes is probably a spotters wet dream.

French in flight

Compilation of Mirage, Mirage 2000 and Rafale footage. This video has everything, from low level passes in Chad to high altitude chases in the Rafale. Also some very nice footage taken from the French movie “Skyfighters”.

Very low Viper

This F-16 comes in for a very very low level high speed pass. Some might argue this Viper was way out low, but who cares… as long as the crowd was pleased 🙂

Heli touchdown

My personal guess is this pilot didn’t really want for this maneuver to go the way it did. Of course, I am only saying this because the touch down seemed to be a little bit on the rough side, a look at the slow motion and you’ll understand… also I am wondering what were those passengers thinking after the touch down…
