They never flew as close as this video showed.

Tom was at our awards dinner with a lap top full of fantastic pictures. He didn't have to bring these shots to dinner he wanted to. He had a group of Poker Runners around his table all evening looking at the days pictures. A truly nice person who loved what he was doing. He will be missed.

As a boater whom enjoys the low flying helo's at poker runs I will never complain about how low a pilot chooses to go for the shot, as for the people in the aircraft, they choose to be there and most likely enjoy the ride.
As a pilot who has taken a few low flying jobs (Crop Dusting) you only go as low as you feel comfortable doing (Safety is at 10,000ft). It does not matter if your going under a powerline or flying over the swells in the ocean... things happen, mistakes are made and miscalculations can be tragic.
Reading through this post one thing is for sure. Everyone who has been under these two men during a photoshoot have been greatfull and say that they did a wonderfull job. That is a legacy they can be proud of.
Still very sad to hear and my heart goes out to friends and family.
