ebaumsworld is a website were people post all kinds of short videos.  they have anything from being hilarious to outright disgusting.  Another website is stupidvideos.com  The name explains itself but I haven't seen any aviation related videos on that one.

There's this one, too.  http://www.ebaumsworld.com/videos/flyby.html

That's why skydivers are called "meat missiles"... ;D

 :o :o :o

Who the heck is that? Looks like a military helicopter but not from North America though, I think.

Was that a Super Puma? And was that pilot insane? Did you see some of the passes to the side of the cameraman, it was less than 5 ft off the ground at high speed, and that overpass over what appeared to be a civlian car towards them, he must've needed new pants after that!

Edit:
The lowest I've seen before was this clip I found online again for your viewing pleasure: http://www.vsocial.com/video/?d=1116

And of course the spit over the potty-mouthed and supposedly seasoned presenter (I forgot his name). Warning pop-ups gallore

Btw I must've missed Firegirl's sign, that's a great one :D

Was the video itself sent to your email or was it a link? In the later case you can copy and paste the adress like text, I think, it depends on how the email is shown with the program you're using.

If it's a small clip then you might be able to attach it here, not sure what the limit is here.

Speaking of small clips I remmeber the clip of the absolute nutter (british term) that flew under the Eiffel Tower several years ago, in a bonanza I think, the video is taken from inside the plane as he goes under  :o And as the story I heard goes, it was after he took off from the airport and he then headed straight out of the country since he didn't have permission and there's a warrant out for him or there was. Even being well before 9/11 I think the people in the tower must've been scared out of their wits.

How big is the video? You can attach *.mpg and *.wmv files up to 1MB in size here. Maybe I could lift that limit even higher...

Just in case anyone wanted to see the Paris video then it's a 1/2 mb .mov clip (quicktime).
