I've never seen a fly by between two ships . It kinda makes me wonder what the OldMan was thinking when he approved it.

I don't think there was much room for any error as he was flying in excess of 700MPH. He was flying at aproximately flight deck level which is lower than the mast on both ships, and he was mighty close to that Destroyer.

Amazing! As a son of a retired fighter training, I love these things. Keep 'em coming!

In the first video, i wonder what the speed was?

He was flying faster than the speed of sound. Probably moving at 765-800 MPH.
