At 1:51, is he actually touching the water? :shock:
Or is he just very close?

For some reason, it looks fake. Planes with that much speed would be kicking up a lot of water if they were going that close. Also, is it really possiible to go maintian that kind of elevation without loosing control?

only if they were generating massive amounts of turbulence. im no expert on planes, especially military ones, but i would guess that theyre designed quite well to eliminate any air turbulence they cause, no? a helicopter may be a different story, but not planes, theyre slick like that.

n military planes usually fly low to get under the radar.

It's not faked... slightly insane low flying... but not fake.
(that low level roll at the end is particularly crazy).

There is a shot where you see the planes rotate up into a climb, and you can see the jet wash on the water. However, on level flight above the water there will be very little disturbance below the aircraft.
