It does look pretty close but its hard to tell because of the angle, it may really not be that close at all

This is my first post - so before I say anything I want to say thanks to Snotr, I have been enjoying videos on this site and laughing at everyone's witty comments for years.

I'm a paraglider pilot and have had close calls with aircraft, but never like this. This could have been very ugly very quickly, although the tow-line does have a "weak link" right below the pilot that will break the line under stress and likely would have. I once saw a US Marines Osprey with it's massive propellers/rotors heading literally right at me at 10,000 feet, only my spirals & wingovers made him see my wing and turn, slightly. That close fly by was one of the cooler things I've seen. Another time I had a private jet fly about 500 feet right below me at speed...pretty sure that pilot never ever even saw me, was watching one of his TVs while drinking coffee or something!
