Daring pilot flies Douglas C-47 Skytrain low and fast (VIDEO)

A pilot flew a Douglas C-47 Skytrain just feet off the ground during a very low flyby at a private airstrip in Texas.

The C-47 Skytrain is the military version of the DC-3 Dakota. It was used during World War II as a transport aircraft and very few of them remain today, The Aviationist reports.

A flyby at that altitude and speed requires great skill and control, though ground effect would provide some aid.

According to the poster of the YouTube video, “no one [was] around for miles and there was no dogs cats are birds harmed in the making of this video.” [sic]
