Aviation Photo #2039318 Boeing 737-7V3 - Copa Airlines

[Canon 1D Mark III + Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L] When I planned this year's trip to SXM, I booked one-way tickets on two separate carriers, so I could get a few extra hours of spotting in. About an hour prior to my airport check-in to return home, fellow A.netter Marseno Bremer and I looked in astonishment, as Copa 134 floated low over the water and made an extremely low approach over Maho Beach. It was the highlight of my trip, and left me speechless in the minutes following the landing.

I didn't know that COPA is changing their livery to a cyan, white, black, white, red, white stripes scheme, and yes the approach is very low! :D

Pretty low isnt it? Imagine a 747 would be at that position instead of a 737.

Thanks, everyone. I found a video of this landing on YouTube (titled "Incredible 737 landing at St. Maarten"). My photo didn't do it complete justice, since I was at a low angle to the plane, using a wide angle lens.

Remarkable shot of a 737 making a low approach; completely UNremarkable day for the beach.
