Footage believed to have been taken by a video camera attached to a model aircraft that reportedly came with seconds of colliding with a Virgin Blue 737 last Friday at Perth airport was posted to YouTube over the weekend.

The man believed responsible for the near disaster took the video off YouTube on Sunday but not before it was recorded and saved by model aircraft enthusiasts furious at the reckless stunt.

The enthusiasts have handed the video, which was edited to Top Gun music and dialogue, and tracked down the offender and passed all the details to police.

The news article states that a collision occurred. From the video it seems the RC was pretty far from a collision.

Stupid none the less.

Whether it actually hit the aircraft or not doesn't really matter... From the video, it is clear that it was close enough to get wiped out by the jetstream/disturbed air from the aircraft, which is WAY too close...Tony Stott

At our flying field, military aircraft fly over on a constant basis. We are actually in line of the AFB runway, albeit, over five miles away. WE make it a point that flyers do not fly too high only because we love our sport and would probably castrate the first idiot that makes a problem for our club members.

That guy that did this stunt have probably gotten the RC community into negative light. Beware "big Brother" now.
