Shocked birdwatcher captures two private light aircraft swooping down over estuary - a mere eight FEET from surface of water

This shocking footage shows the moment two light aircraft swooped so low over an estuary that they were almost "skimming the water". The two pilots were spotted soaring along a sea wall at the River Blackwater, near Maldon, Essex - a mere eight feet above the water's surface. The privately-owned light aircraft, which appear to be based at Popham Airfield in Basingstoke, Hants., swooped so low and close to the sea wall that it appeared as if one of them was going to land on it. This video was shot on the 15th December 2020.
