Negative Ghost Rider, the pattern is full

For any of you aspiring commercial pilots out there, a word of advice: buzzing the tower is not cool. You are not Tom Cruise, and that jumbo jet is not an F-14.

Check out the video of the event that triggered the controversy. Not very flashy by airshow standards, but from a “COMMERCIAL PASSENGER SAFETY” standpoint I can see the concern.
