Whoa! Video shows military jet skim skyscrapers

BRISBANE, Australia (WFLA/CNN) - Residents of Brisbane were startled this week when an Air Force plane was caught on camera flying low through the city. 

This cell phone video shows the C-17A Globemaster plane approaching a high rise before swooping upward. 

The Australian Air Force issued a statement Tuesday saying the exercise was planned and under full supervision of air traffic control. 

However, residents said it was the first time they had seen the military transport plane fly so low over the city.

It was all part of the preparations for the annual Riverfire, which was held along the banks of the Brisbane River.
