A SQUADDIE ducks as a Harrier jump jet screams feet above his head — during a terrifying game of “chicken”.
The daredevil stunt is the latest craze among thrill-seeking British troops in Afghanistan.
To beat the boredom of the desert, Our Boys challenge each other to remain standing in the path of £40million RAF warplanes flying just 15 FEET above the ground.
Ace's low ... the Harrier jet thunders over squaddie's head
If they duck, they lose the game. And Top Gun pilots join in the fun by flying as low as they safely can.
The Sun has obtained electrifying video footage of the game — filmed at Kandahar air base recently as one of the Harriers took off on a sortie. A Scots serviceman stands with his back to the jump jet as it roars towards him at 200mph.
The soldier tries to stand his ground — but at the very last second he bottles it and throws himself down on all fours. An RAF source said: “It can get boring on long tours in the desert and the chicken games are a great way to get the blood pumping. There’s not been a bloke brave enough to stay on his feet yet.”
Top brass ordered an inquiry amid fears the prank might be a dangerous initiation ceremony. But no evidence was found of servicemen being coerced.
An MoD spokesman last night pledged to “have a word” with soldiers over the stunts.
