    Pretty low at times. Down to 75 metres.

    I wonder if fighter jet pilots talk to themselves on every flight or if it was only for the cameras.

    ^It might be some sort of a promotional video, something along the lines of So did you ever wonder what it's like to be an RAF pilot sort of thing for recruitment days.

    Awesome clip anyway, it'd be hard to get excited behind the wheel of a car driving home after a flight like that!.

    Here's a US Navy pilot flying an F/A-18 Hornet through the canyons of Northern California before crossing into Oregon. If you squint your eyes, you should be able to see Jeff waving at the pilot.

    What a great video.
    What a rush.

    I had a friend who flew Phantoms for the Royal Navy and the way he put it was when you are doing close to 500 knots at 50' over the North sea, you only have to sneeze and that's it.
