I like the shots from there, but this question came up in my mind just now:
Why do the aircraft landing on SXM's Runway 09 approach the runway so low? What is the point of that? As far as I know, the runway is well over 2000 meters. Has a 747 problems with stopping in 2 kilometers? From the videos I've seen, the aircraft don't land as soon as one would think while looking at the pictures...

Looking forward to some answers...
PS: I'm very sorry if this has been discussed before, if so, I'd be more than glad to see the threads.
