Aviation has come a very long way since the days of the Wright Brothers and all those who came before them. It's kind of crazy to think just how far it truly has come in a mere 120 years. From the invention of jet and turbine engines to the lightweight alloys and hybrid-metals used in the latest and cutting-edge aircraft.
It's a shame some of the earliest pioneers of flight and manned aircraft never got to see some of the absolutely insane things airplanes are capable of today. Many people love to watch aircraft flying around, and it's not really limited to the die-hard aviation enthusiast or former pilot. Check out this badass compilation of a variety of awesome aircraft flying at low altitudes, buzzing the tower, performing tricks, and even breaking the sound barrier. If you enjoy watching flight maneuvers for airshows, military exercises, or recreational pilots, then this is the perfect video for you.
