More than likely it's an optical illusion. I've spent time around a bunch of aircraft stunt guys and what they do is put their plane down "below" ground where there is a low spot. Highly planned and coordinated maneuvers like that give the viewer from their perspective the thought that the plane went down.

Had that P-51 actually been that low over the runway, it would have had a prop-strike which would have been unrecoverable.



One of the stunt planes did this at the Rockford Airshow this year. The whole crowd about shat when it looked like he flew his plane right into the ground. Not gonna lie, my heart skipped a beat
