    So, yes, I’m pretty well briefed on those policies. By a Three Star once......

    It has vacillated back an forth during my 23 years flying fighters. When I started out as a LT A-7D pilot, it was 100 ft. That basically meant, don't hit the ground. It has crept up to 500 ft as you say. Flying star wars canyon is a trip. Below 500 ft--yeah, probably but you are terrain masking. Did I mention that it is the best thing you can do with your clothes on? And they paid me to do it. We did not go out of our way to buzz anyone. F-111s used to fly at 200 ft supersonic with the autopilot on.
