The people of a Australian city were terrified as a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) plane flew within meters from high-rise buildings in Brisbane during a festival. The giant aircraft is seen flying through the city at the incredibly low altitude before banking upwards.

The stunt involving a Boeing C-17 has been slammed on social media as "unnecessarily stupid and dangerous". Footage shows the giant aircraft flying through the city towards the skyscrapers, with one spectator heard calling it ’9/11 stuff’ as the plane banks upwards at the very last minute to avoid the buildings.

You can see from the footage that the aircraft flying through the city just within mere meters of buildings that the plane only narrowly avoided. The stunt has been slammed on social media as “unnecessarily stupid and dangerous”. Some onlookers said it described it as “9/11 stuff”, comparing it to the 2001 terror atrocity which saw nearly 3,000 people killed when two planes flew into the Twin Towers in New York.
