Taken at Ohakea, December 13, 2001. S/Ldr Easthope begins one of his infamous 'low passes. This one was reported at 480kts at 50'AGL. The pictures shows the start of the run. I couldn't have been more than 100m from his pass, and I have trouble believing 50' - but I guess it depends where you're measuring from. But remember, these are the same guys who sneak up on carriers at below flight deck level.
