scud-running means to intentionally fly low.Pilots use it in a derogatory way to refer to rookie pilots. Do you think it's the term you seek?

Depending on context "Threading the Needle" can also apply although it is usually only used in a military context. It's when a plane flies low to avoid air defense radar systems.

Dys it is a lovely message from a pilot to get a fly by, low and slow or low and fast. Or in orther words how can you know your goin 500 miles per unless you only 500 hundred feet off the deck.

LarryBS got it. (He's so smart!)

"The prosecution had argued that Capt Ashby had been 'flat-hatting' - flying his electronic warfare Prowler recklessly in a display of 'Top Gun' bravado, when his wing sheared the cables."

Another term that is used is "flying on the deck". Not sure where this comes from, but is likely a naval term for pilots who just can't seem to land on the damn carrier (not an easy thing anyway).

Cjhsa how about buying the farm that is really on the deck. Flying on the deck is a crash landing I think.
