Wondering, what such a large payload from China does in Costa Rica.

Very dynamic shot, the pitch attitude shows she's still very much being maneuvered off the visual approach, possibly adjusting "ground effect"/touchdown point on the papi/vasi or using visual perspective - the pitch attitude is more or less zero at a height of about 80(?)ft whereas 2º nose up would be more appropriate. On the other hand, there's a small possibility that the camera angle propagates an illusion.
