Watch as Ukrainian jet makes extraordinary low pass over base

A new video showing a fighter jet flying at high speed just metres off the ground has been viewed tens of thousands of times in just a day on social media websites.

Aviation experts say the jet belongs to the Ukrainian Air Force and identify it as an Su-24M Fencer, a jet capable of supersonic flight designed to perform ultra-low level strikes.

As the aircraft approaches, even the videographer appears to be alarmed at the height of the aircraft, dropping to ground level as the plane flies over him, appearing to miss aircraft parked nearby by centimetres.

The video has been posted across social media sites including Reddit within the last 24 hours but is yet to be officially verified by authorities.
