@Wilbur does that take a lot of skill? I imagine during certain conditions air currents  would be troublesome.

I know that the US Military banned it's pilots from flying in Star Wars Canyon after a fighter crashed, killed the pilot and injured some observers.

Not really.  There are conditions that make low level flight dangerous like strong winds, poor visibility or low sun positions.  The Mach Loop is a much more challenging course.

You ever flown the Mach loop?

No, I was entertained chasing US cruise missiles and chasing down Russian Bears. 

I did get to fly the Dead Sea run several times which was also a lot of fun.

I've read an article about some problems getting the navigation system to behave properly at -1200 ft.  It seems that the aircraft software couldn't believe it.  :lol:
