On the weekend of 16 September, another aerial festival took place in Évora, Portugal. Nothing remarkable here, except for the fact that this partiuclar exhibition was carried out by Captain José Brito on board a TAP Airbus 310. There were at least two breathtaking moments. The first was a low altitude flight followed by a tight curve to the left, whereby the plane's wingtip almost scraped the ground. The second was a very low altitude flight at over 600 km/h. Where is the line between genious and mad drawn?
This stunt, or madness, is much talked about in well known fora such as Airliners. The images and videos are quite impressive.
Following the discussion around this event, on Airliners, another low altitude flight was mentioned. This took place in 2004 using a Varig Log Boeing 727.
