One thing that needs to be made clear about the buzzing the pier is that it is not an active duty aircraft. Looks like an L-39 Albatross Warbird. It is a Check trainer for their militar but a warbird flown by civil pilots in this country. This guy is a civil pilot, not military in a US DOD aircraft. And your right if that isn't part of an going air show he is in deep doody.Hope they didn't get as close as this guy did.
