That's about all a Pucara is good for.

That's a bit unfair, I'm sure its good for killing unarmed students and trade union members.

Not exactly "caused by".

The pilot noticed early on final that the gear had failed to go-down as commanded in the base leg.
So he decided to go around, and also decided to take the opportunity to make the low pass.

Since this pilot is considered the best Argentinian pilot which is alive, I can only imagine that the altitude was intentional what, in turn, automatically disqualifies him as the best pilot or even a good one, since judgement is a necessary requirement no matter how good the stick-and-rudder skills.

At least in this case, unlike the Pucará and Pampa ones (and others, you'll find A4s, Mirages and Daggers too), he was playing with his own life, own plane, and own training.
Not with others' lives and an airplane and training paid by us via taxes.

INDEED.

I am confused by the comments on YouTube. If one of the airplanes had crashed/killed somebody, surely the comments would include the word "boludo" a million times. But everything went well, so the irresponsibility and the risks involved are forgotten and everyone is talking about bravery and ability.
I must admit I enjoyed watching those videos, but at the same time I see more lack of common sense than ability in those pilots.

I wonder what these people think when they see a Fiat Uno zigzagging at high speed on a busy highway,
