You're making a lot of assumptions Arie about the motivation/reasoning
behind flying an aeroplane low near an airport. You could always call
the airport or local flying club and ask them for background information
about the flight(s) in question just to see whether its indeed a hothead
pilot, or a normal pilot in trouble, or a pilot-in-training executing some
move their instructor has asked them to do, etc.

How close to which airport are you?
