Most of the reason for the lower altitude flying, however, is due to the unsealed/unpressurized planes, and the thinner air at higher altitudes. Unless they're carrying (and breathing) oxygen, they're stuck at the lower altitudes.

However, there are cases of low flying bombers, during the Viet Nam "conflict", that were allegedly shot down by farmers carrying old black powder rifles, in the .50 caliber range. The old "golden BB" concept.
