Wow very cool!
But is that legal? What if your plane got sucked into a jets engine?

I always fly with a spotter or 2 using binoculars and a screen toview my video feed we have live telematry mapping the wings location on googleearth and a plan tracker running as well that maps full scale air traffic thespotters will point out any air traffic in the vicinity so I can avoid it. usuallydrop down to under 400ft sharpish. dont do this kind of altitude flying all thetime and generally stay out of clouds but made an exception for this video.

cheers
