Many years ago I was a pax on a Aviogenex B737-200 scheduled service that did a 360 on final approach at an estimated 300 ft.

What does the presence or absence of pax have to do with it? Is the manoeuvre safe or not?

No difference I agree, and having learned the local situation there by now, making a 360 at 100ft instead of higher or worse a go around above land/city, yes, this was definitively a safer option .. with or without pax .
Making a 360 with 30 degr bank at 100ft or 500ft is the same manoeuvre , the aircraft does not behave differently , as long as you have wingtip clearance you can even do it lower.. because the aim here was I believe to avoid being shot at ...

Is not MPL quite a new thing? Why is everyone who is not flying for 40 years considered to be super bad pilot here? This is getting out of hand.

We do not know that not being shot at was the aim. It's an assumption.

Your multiple posts on the same theme make you seem a tad defensive. Relax.

There are still some good pilots flying, this video just celebrates an era when it was more the norm than the exception to be able to capably fly a machine manually.

And this thread will be written in the Bibliography of PPRuNe as The Great Masturbation Topic, Slightly Myopic.

I have always wondered how many feet that wing top was above the ground, how much more angle of bank they could have got away with and if they did that on purpose or slightly miss judged that manoeuvre bearing in mind how hard it is to see the wingtip in a swept wing aircraft.

Perfectly safe. Easier to do in a prop than in a 727. Used to do it on the P3.

Brilliant! The snowflakes of the magenta line might be getting their panties in a wad, but this guy can at least fly the aeroplane.

From the 'Cargo Pilots in a Boeing' airshow department at a collegiate aviation safety event earlier this year in Janesville, Wisconsin. They went down below 50 feet radar altitude with the wheels up on the low pass.

Both pilots got fired.

And the cockpit video taken by the jumpseat rider has been taken down from YouTube.
