My favorite

is a video of a guy flying an enormous B-52 bomber less than 20 feet over a hill top at Yakima Proving Range. I can't locate the video right now but the pilot and his crew were later killed when he was hot dogging another B-52 in preparation for an air show at Fairchild AFB in WA state. I actually witnessed his final seconds of air time. Sadly his crew paid the ultimate price for his bravery (stupidity?). They ejected right into the fireball.

Here it is.

Here it is:

The low pass at Yakima starts at about 4:38. The guy is so low that you can actually see the top of the B-52 as it approaches the hill top in question.

Here is a link to the story of this idiot pilot:  http://www.crm-devel.org/resources/paper/darkblue/darkblue.htm

The story link includes estimates that he was as low as THREE FEET above the ridgeline!

He was also carrying a Colonel who was on his final "hose down" flight before retirement. His entire family was present and watching when altitude and airspeed ran out. There is another video that shows the crew ejecting but they land in the fireball. Wings vertical is the proper attitude for ejection as crew members are shot out the top and bottom of the aircraft in a bailout scenario.
