Dangerously low, this ATR was actually in level flight when i viewed my sequence of shots, the white perimeter fence seen is approximately 3 feet in height, this aircraft only just cleared the fence to which i did not think at this moment would be possible. A Zest airline aircraft hit this fence only a couple of months earlier in a similar approach with persons injured on board.

That is Lowwww.I reckoned some of the Biz jets at SXM were as low as they come at around 15 feet,but this one comes in at around 6 feet above the road.Well captured.

I know this view very well. The house of my in-laws is nearby, and when my wife and I go to visit them, I always walk to airplane spot there, and yes, they do come in "low" certainly. My wife is from Caticlan...Thanks Ryan for posting this photo!

That moment must've lasted a lifetime for the pilots as they wondered if they were clear. 5*

Just before the ATR crossed the road it actually pulled up and made level flight in order to clear the fence, to say my heart was in my mouth was an understatement!

Aircraft sharply focused with soft background blur. That's the difference between Zest and CEBPAC. One clears the fence!

Fortunately there is one car travelling at road at that moment, guess nobody wants a plane to be landing at their car roof.

I used to ride my bike on that exact road. We sometimes wait for so long after the aircraft has passed by. The road is closed as seen on the backround 5/5

So low! Unfortunately all bigger turboprops that used to service Caticlan are transferred to a nearby airport in Kalibo, due to the overshot incidents.

I think is the construction of tht road at the fence of the airport suppose to go dawn a bit.if the road is not nearer in height to the fence i think the aircraft can get more cearance between the fence nd the landing

This fence has been removed.This is now the normal approach for Caticlan.I noticed no one ever mentioned that the usable runway length is only 850 meters and the wind is normally gusting at 20-30 knots with wind shear on low finals,note this is not a small turboprop,it is a 72-seater.My pilot friends tell me,you don't only need the nerve to fly this but also balls of steel!

Wow!!!! What a dangerous landing! Do they have to close the road to the public everytime an incoming plane is close by?

This plane could have a future in Showjumping if it keeps clearing fences like this! Awesome shot- hope the phot had some good hearing protection on at the time! Thanks for posting this photo!
