I had a similar experience as a kid on a hwy in a rural area when a low flying two-seater fighter jet flew low and crossed us over our starboard side. I have no idea what flavor it was, but it was a bronze colored jet...vividly recall making eye contact with both pilots. The closest AF base would have been Barksdale AFB about 85 miles South.

Mine was in a fully loaded log truck near Ft Drum in NY. An A10 buzzed us at about 50 feet. It rocked that truck like a toy.

Cool as hell ;)

I have to wonder who put on that show. They just happened to be rolling tape and a military jet does a head on, very low pass? Don't think so.

Just maybe it was a Russian flying car...

Regular thing ~ we usually go down to a parking lot just outside Ronald Regun National airport to watch jets come in low to land, or take off.

Last Thursday (?) was one of those DOD recognition days so they had a flyover. A few jets. A handful of helicopters. And a brand new Osprey!

They flew over the Pentagon, then the Mark Center, and begun their turn at my house ~ I was sitting there looking out the front window at them as they came over very low.

Russian insurance companies require dash cams due to excessive fraud. This is why we are seeing so much cool video from Russian roads.

helicopter surprise

About my close encounter: I haven’t seen that exact plane before or since. It may have been an experimental model, though it fairly resembled an F-18, only longer; a big fighter jet as they go. And this was either 1978/1979.

Interesting info. Tanks.

And not a bad idea either, come to think of it.

Sounds like an F-111 possibly?

Awesome video. Where was this? It looked like it could have been America.

You ever get the feeling some people film their entire lives. Why else would you catch this?

My close encounter was when I worked at Pax River NAS. One part of the perimeter road had a stop sign at the tail end of a runway where pilots practiced touch and go, and catapult launches. You could look both ways, but over the water, especially there, were trees blocking part of your view. I literally stopped my car, and checked the auto for afterburner marks on one close call.

In the early 70's I was hitch-hiking in the Saar valley in West Germany when a pair of German F-104 Starfighters did that, made me jump.
