Caution: F-16s On Approach Might Be Lower Than They Appear

This Turkish F-16 decided to give some #avgeek spotters a show. For him, the glide slope was just a recommendation.

Most fighter pilots love their job.  They also love to show off their capabilities. Turkish Air Force Captain Yusuf Kurt decided to showboat as he approached the field after a sortie. He dropped below the typical approach glide slope and buzzed above them less than 20 feet above the assembled crowd.

Was it dangerous? Or was he just trying to utilize the most runway possible? What do you think?
