12th place
It may seem that the plane touches the observer's heads, in fact it flies about 30-40 meters away, over an empty runway. The plane is piloted by Jurgis Kairys, a pilot from Lithuania, the only man I know who has permission to perform aerobatics at the level of 0 m (zero meters!). As you can see, he uses it, flying upside down at an altitude of some 3-4 meters. A photo was taken on The Małopolska Air Show 2008. Although it looks dangerous, there has never been an accident involving people during these shows (unfortunately once there was a very unpleasant accident in which the dog suffered, terrified by the deafening roar of airplane engines - it was the fault of the undoubted idiot - the owner, who brought the dog to these shows).
