Seems like an unnecessary risk. Engine(s) hiccup, could kill hundreds or thousands.

Tell that to the pilots father that his son graduated from pilot training and buzzed him at a Mexico Beach condo. Crashed all we found was 2 boots and thousands of crabs. A stupid useless waste of fuel in Australia. Wonder how many window were broken.

Some of the best put together aircrews and maintainers I ever worked with in the desert were Aussie’s. They fly better, work together better and in general actually enjoy what they do much better than our military does because they’re not strapped down and choked out by over-thinking the way we do here. I’d fly with them any day! Shoot, what they did there pales in comparison to what they do on a daily basis elsewhere.

No doubt about any of the pilots or planes being the best. Just my opinion on safety of flying to close to buildings and sightseers. Strange different direction winds or up drafts, down drafts can cause an accident.

If you look at the video, the buildings aren't as close as you think from the photos. Telephoto lenses and depth of field are a thing.

From last year:
