Airbus A320 Makes a Low Pass in Hungary

Seeing low flying aircraft is a bit unsettling, especially in heavily populated city centers like Budapest, but fear not. On May 1, Hungary celebrated Labour Day and apparently flying a giant airliner dangerously close to the ground. It's just how that country likes to party. The WizzAir Airbus A320 dropped down across the Danube before performing a sweeping climb over the bridges, Parliament, and thousands of sleeping Hungarians. With two engines capable of over 25,000 lbs. of thrust each and a total cost of nearly $94 million – it is by no means a simple stunt.
