Two Air Berlin pilots are suspended after they buzzed a tower with 200 passengers on board.

It happened during a routine landing at an airport in German and the stunt had people on the ground screaming in fear.

The control tower, however, approved the maneuver, which was meant to honor the bankrupt airline's final long-haul flight.
