Low airliners collection

A collection of some of the greatest flybys done with airliners. Most of the time you see low level flybys performed by military pilots and their fighters or aerobatic pilots and their nimble airplanes. This time you have the chance to watch Boeings and Airbuses as their pilots go low.

Rolling the 707

On August 7, 1955, Boeing test pilot Alvin M. “Tex” Johnston rolled the Boeing 707 prototype, known as Dash-80, in a demonstration flight over Lake Washington.

Jumbo drag race

Some times commercials can be really funny. Take this one for instance. It’s crazy and funny and great. Two Boeing 747 Jumbo crews battle it out in the airport using their planes. A real laugh. How would you fell if you heard “Your flight is ready for boarding” and then saw two Jumbos with two insane crews at the gate?

Jet blast is powerful

Staged demonstration of the effects of jet blast. “Engine runs are loud… and dangerous. Jet blast is powerful”. I just the love the way that narrator said it. I find it rather funny. Interesting video though. Seeing means believing. Oh yeah, jet blast is really powerful. That car is just like a leaf in the wind.

Jumbo low

Have you ever wondered what a Jumbo Jet would look like really close to the ground? And i don’t mean while on the runway… NO, doing some low level flybys, feeling the mazing sound of those four roaring turbojets… Oh, yeah! This South African Boeing 747 really delivers. Check out this amazing flick.

How often do you get the chance to film something extraordinary? A Mexican passenger on-board this Boeing 767 was just trying to film the final approach and landing at Guatemala City Airport. He got more than he hoped for… He managed to film the crash and offer us a perspective from the passenger’s point of view. And that is quite amazing.

Check out this amazing video of a Boeing 747 Jumbo landing at Hong Kong Airport with a severe cross wind. The pilot does seem to struggle a bit but in the end he touches down, a bit to the left. But if you survive the landing, you can call it a good one.

Controlled crash

NASA undertook some flight test with the Boeing 707. Oh yeah! They did a “controlled impact demonstration” hoping the aircraft will not catch fire. Would you like to see what happened?

Cool landing

A KLM Boeing 747 comes in for the landing at St. Marten Airport. NO, he is not going to crash, it is standard procedure at this airport to come low over the beach. This is really cool landing, and must be quite a sight.
