Almost looked like the pilot was trying to hit the camera man with the wing tip. Fool. And even more foolish to post it.

Looks like an airport and runways are for airplanes not hoverrounds.

I'm sorry, I'm not reading you. I was foolish to post it? Why?

I think he meant foolish for the pilot to allow it to be publicly posted.

Ah ... that makes more sense (although it's not clear that the pilot had anything to do with putting it on YouTube).

No not YOU Neil! The pilot! I read the pilot had been rated for low level aerobatics but his waver expired. Meaning he would be in trouble with the FAA for coming within 500 feet of any person vessel or structure. .

(c) Over other than congested areas. An altitude of 500 feet above the surface, except over open water or sparsely populated areas. In those cases, the aircraft may not be operated closer than 500 feet to any person, vessel, vehicle, or structure.

It's fake, that Bipe is going way too fast in the ending scene.

I fall for that crap all the time. I did think it was amazing how much altitude that Pitts had when the camera panned up and to the right.

Thanks, I understand now. But you say you read about this somewhere? Do you have a link? I'm very curious about it.

Has it been confirmed that this is a fake? If so, it seems to be an awfully good one (to my eye, at least). Even the altitude gain at the end seems possible to me if the plane is really doing 200 mph. Do people think this is a CGI job of some kind?

Okay, at least according to this link, it's real.

Quote:
A Biplane speeds towards a screaming camerawoman at 200mph before narrowly missing her in a stunt which has become a viral hit.

The footage shows the plane performing a fly-by just two feet from the woman as she stands on a runway.

The stunt was filmed for part of a show featuring daredevils, Those Crazy Texans, who are well known for their acrobatics on two or four wheels.

The video starts with a man performing a wheelie on a quad bike.

Suddenly, the plane swoops into view heading straight towards the camera before pulling up at the last moment.

The film has been watched more than 140,000 times.

Actually it was another pilot I was talking to that mentioned the waver. I just watched again and counted 5 seconds between the time the plane passed and the camera panned right to pick up the plane again flying the opposite direction.
Maybe that is possable if the pilot is willing to pull some killer G's. I have no idea if this is fake or not but I do know they are really good at faking stuff.
