Firebirds!

No, not the uber-cheezey Nic Cage film. VA-304, the Naval Air Reserve A-6 Intruder squadron made a video back in the day. The home base is NAS Alameda, which most of you know today as the runway where the Mythbusters do some of their more…. kinetic… experiments.  These clips also have some of the best low-level flying shots I’ve seen.

Oh, and all that scary low level stuff?

They also did it at night.
