F-16 Jet Makes VERY Low Landing, Barely Misses Spectators At British Air Show

And you thought close calls at the airport were bad.

Spectators outside a British air show were shell-shocked this weekend when an F-16 fighter jet zipped right over them, appearing to miss their heads by what feels like mere inches.

The stunt was part of a planned demonstration, but nothing about this looks safe, nor worthy of re-demonstrating.

According to the The Independent, these spectators weren't ticketed air show attendees -- they had posted up in a field outside the show's main grounds.

This might explain their closer-than-usual encounter with the jet, and it also serves as definite proof that air shows are frightening, not calming, travel destinations.
