How safe should flying be?
Flying low is risky. It just is. The closer you are to big, immovable objects, like bridges, mountains and unlit towers, the more likely you are to run into them by mistake. Which is why landing and taking off are inherently risky phases of flight. You do them in close proximity to terra very firma. At the same time, the rewards of flying low can be great. Some of my favorite flights low level over the Snake River in Idaho, bouncing to a quick stop on a dirt road in the perfect dewy morning in the middle of nowhere California, just us and a few cows, and on a regular basis busting through the soup to the beautiful video-like sight of the runway lights at my intended destination. It's incredibly cool.
