Why would the FAA allow a plane to fly over houses in Danville just above the tree tops, almost low enough that you can see the pilot? It is not only very dangerous but it is very reckless. They have done this before and I find it scary at the very least. I tried to take a picture but he was flying way to fast for a picture to come out. This happened at 12:58 this afternoon.

I have no issues with this happening for any planned events. But when it is happening on a regular basis then I start to wonder if it's just someone flying low to impress friends from out of town. I enjoy watching the P51 as much as the next person. When they are flying low enough to read the numbers on the plane above a residential area that's just a bit too low.

The original comment was left on March 22nd, Saturday. So presumably did not apply to the P-51, which is a very loud, deep toned aircraft that is hard to miss. Was the aircraft more like a WW2 fighter jet, a Cessna or personal use aircraft, or like the parachute thingy that does seem to fly really loudly around south Danville / San Ramon? If you have a description of the time, type of aircraft and what was wrong, you can contact the FAA Flight Standards District Office to report the low flying aircraft -- you can find out how to contact at: https://www.faa.gov/about/office_org/field_offices/fsdo/?state=CA

Just how low are they really. When one says "just above the tree tops", what does that really mean? I've never seen those planes fly so low that it would alarm me. Whether its for Memorial Day or some guy showing off his vintage war plane, I really enjoy them.

The plane buzzed the SRVHS graduation today. Again I enjoy a nice air show as much as the next person but today was just crazy. If anyone was there can you please reply on how low he was.
