Great stuff - to think they get paid to do that!!!

Probably the ultimate low level plane is the trusty old Buccaneer - Funnily enough it is called the Banana Jet - one for Cookee!!! With a full weapons load it is still the fastest low level plane around - shame it's been retired.

"Clean" the Tornado is probably the fastest but one thing people don't realise is the hammering the pilots get when they go low - pretty much like in a Rib really!!! The British aircraft tend to give the best rides - some of the Yank and Russian planes are impossible to fly low for very long without injuring the crew!!!

Some years ago the RAF joined in with the US Red Flag exercise. Wekicked their butts as they consider low flying at 200ft whereas the RAF 20ft. We just kept popping up and taking them out.
