As u can see it has almost overrun this Rwy too.It's closing to the threshold and the spoilers are open,flaps still down.Conclusion:May be still braking...or the pilot forgot to retract

Very nice overview photo of SXM. I don't think the aircraft is close to overrunning the runway, it is probably just rolling out and has the reversers at idle.

I love how this airport is so 'crowded' with American Airliners. In the picture you can see two AA 757's, a USAirways 757 and a Continental 737!

Very nice wide shot of SXM.
the pilot did not overrun. he will do a right U-Turn at the end of the runway. those 2 tarmac pockets are on our right of the runway are for U-Turns. The Jumbo Jets always use them at SXM. search on YouTube for St Maarten 747 cockpit landing.

Reverses are still out. So speed still +60Kts. Not a lot of tar left to turn in.
