A Spanish pilot friend of mine sends me this stunning video of a low pass flyby in Argentina. I just can’t believe the mad man who was flying this jet got it so close to the ground.
The aeroplane is an FMA IA 63, an Argentinian trainer jet that can also fight in combat. I don’t know what speed he is pushing, but this 31-foot wingspan bird can reach 442 knots (509mph, 819km/h) at almost 23,000 feet.
Eat your heart out, Maverick. [Thanks Jorge!]
