One of my all time favourite shot at Anet... But I guess the captain had some explaining to do after this landing. The touchdown was way before the runway threshold.

A visitor from - posted Wed August 17, 2011:
I think the pilot has it backwards...you land between the piano keys....not the chevrons lol. Awesome pic!

Time to review the meaning of the yellow chevrons.

How did this bird manage to pass above the fence at speed of about 160 and seem to touch down on the chevrons? XXX

'Dare Devils' behind the fence! - What would it take then to scare those punks away? Cool Foto though!!! doubleC MW

Reminds me of the movie Pushing Tin... wonder if those guys got thrown by the jetwash

Would be nice to mark the touching point, and to see who gets closer. At what speed is the plane passing?

Great timing and composition

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 2, 2009:
It never ceases to amaze me that Boeing 747-400's can touchdown in very cramped spaces as such runway 09. And even more amazing are the extremely low passes these behemoths make over Maho Beach. I have to visit this beach someday before I die...it's a great place for plane-watching

A visitor from - posted Tue April 7, 2009:
Amazing approach! But really, that KLM pilot almost hit the fence and it seems he touched over the runway Chevrons (those yellow arrows). For those who know, the chevrons are a part of the runway used on emergency conditions, and it's pavement is kind of "soft", what makes the gear of the airplane sink in the pavement. This helps when the airplane aborts a take-off and needs to stop faster.
Anyway, an AMAZING shot!
WOOOP, WOOOP - Terrain, Terrain - PULL UP! Hahahaha!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun August 3, 2008:
Wow, Nice Shot!, You Can See A Man Croched Behind The Fence, I Bet He Got Abit Of A Shock!, Close Call For The Pilot! If Anyone Has Tried Landing A Plane They Will Know Its Hard. But, Any Landing You Can Walk Away From Is A Good Landing, And The Passengers Wont Have A Clue Whats Going On, Unless Your Into Aviation! :D But Great Shot 5/5*

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed July 2, 2008:
Holy cow!
Acording to the Aeronautical Manual those yellow stripes mean than that part of the runway shouldn't be used at any time, but MY GOD that pilot has guts, and the picture is amazing.
Congratulations!!!!!

This is really one of my favourite photo's on A.net. Especially if you know that this landing is prohibited: I know from internal sources at KLM that these pilots had to explain theirselfs at their manager after this landing got public.

Landing planes are challenging. Landing big planes at Princess Juliana makes it even more challenging; and there is nothing better than seeing the crew of this KLM B744 doing it so perfectly.

Am I right in thinking this airport has no automatic landing system? i have seen no other airport with an approach like this only other approach thats just as exciting i can think of is Gibraltar lovely photo.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 26, 2006:
Aircraft: good drama on short landing; human: "fence-huggers" had obvious thrill/scare; photo: sharp, well-composed, and depth-of-field adds to shot -- all work together: bravo!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue July 25, 2006:
Wow

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 25, 2006:
I can't believe somebody got this shot! This was the day i arrived in SXM few hours earlier and that is me running away at the fence. I was standing there waiting to get a good picture with 2 other guys. As the plane was just over the beach i saw it coming too low so i took off running and as you can see i'm almost about ready to jump over the guard rail. Never got the pic.

A visitor from Greece posted Mon July 24, 2006:
Now now..... most airports have the luxury of longer runways, so landing beyond thresholds is not an option. However SXM has not that luxury and i'm quite sure the asphalt where that plane touches down is not of inferior quality to the rest of the runway. After all, being able to accomodate such large birds is good for tourism and the cost of the extra asphalt is nothing to it. Probably the guys who built SXM know better than us, don't you think?

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
Those yellow chevrons incidate an underrun. This area is never to be used for taxi, takeoff, or landing. If there were arrows pointing to the threshold (piano keys) it would be usable for takeoff only. Pilots MUST land beyond the piano keys, always. Bad decision on their part - likely damage to the asphalt, but great photo!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 23, 2006:
I think it is a stuning picture of the 747

This has got to be the world's BEST place for spotting and Chris has captured an amazing pic of this KLM which must have passed over the fence by a whisker! Great shot indeed. I LOVE these SXM pics.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
Wow-not a good decision on this pilots part

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
I bet the guy crouching behind the fence is saying "Anyone know where my hat went??"

Great shot Chris. Must have been great to watch in person.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
Wow! Many of us have seen pictures taken at this airfield, but I've never seen one quite like this. I cannot imagine how those railbirds were feeling, or what the jet blast must have been like.

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
In the right place at the right time! Great angle, and crisp image!

A visitor from United States posted Sun July 23, 2006:
I've never seen a shot like this. You caught it not only mere feet from the runway, but this pilot could not have landed any shorter. Nice job.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Terrific. This picture could spell "violation" for the pilots, however. It is clear they are touching down in the underun which is not stressed for landing or takeoff. I'd like to see if the pavement is damaged, which it most certainly is.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Nice shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 22, 2006:
No professional pilot aims to land on the piano keys let alone before them. The aiming point is your target nearly every time or just before. I appreciate that SXM is fairly short for heavies but this was not a safe landing. As a professional pilot my captain would roast me for doing this! Do they have PAPI's or VASI's at SXM? My guess is not! She is barely over the fence and she's already flaring! Absolutely incredible!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 22, 2006:
The other photo of this landing states this 747 did land before the piano keys - hence the displaced threshold! Great photo nonetheless!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat July 22, 2006:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 22, 2006:
An amazing shot probably the best ever at SXM! There is another photo of this landing from a different angle and it appears this KLM 747 did land on the undershoot/displaced threshold. There is no way the pilots planned to land that shot. One of my favorites of all time!

A visitor from Croatia posted Sat July 22, 2006:
Crazy Dutch!Great photo!i wonder what's the feeling when you have a 747 few meters above your head!

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 22, 2006:
A few months ago I had no knowledge of Airliners.net. Since becoming aware of the website, I have come to the conclusion, based on pictures such as this, that I must travel to St. Maarten and experience this airport first hand.

Thanks for the terrific photo! I can't wait to take a few myself!

Watch Out! 747-400 is coming!!! Excellent Pic!

That poor bastard crouched down behind the fence must have thought his world was about to end!! Gvien that the base of the tail appears to be about 10-15 feet above the fence as it passes, can anyone venture a guess as to how much the main gear missed the fence by?

I must say that I had had enough of pictures from St. Maarten until I saw this one. This is definitely the best picture ever taken so far at this location (very clear, at the right time and very dramatic) Well, the best picture until somebody posts a picture of the same situation but taken from the beach (that would be one hell of a photo!!)

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 20, 2006:
Thank you for the photo!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 19, 2006:
OW DAMN! I really admire those fencehuggers right there. To think that an airplane like that always floats "a bit" before touch-down, it must have seemed like the airplane was gonna hit the dirt rather then even making in over the fence. Then again you might only notice that it was lower then usual in a too short of a time to run...

A visitor from Peru posted Wed July 19, 2006:
Ok, for all I know, the aircraft touched down within the tdz. It's a great photo, but it doesn't actually tell any information about the descent rate of the aircraft (not that it should)... he still came in too low, because there's no way a 3 degree path will take you that low!

Nice shot Chris its at flareheight 5 stars

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 19, 2006:

Even for SXM that approach seems rather low...

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 19, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 19, 2006:
Way to go, Chris! This was a very unusually low approach and you nailed it! I would've screwed this up somehow- Daniel P.

A visitor from Australia posted Wed July 19, 2006:
When you look at the distance from the outer fence to where the 747 is about to touch down there is only seconds in time in it. This is certainly a one off photo as well as a one off landing. I am not sure that where the 747 is landing is designed to take the weight as this appears to be the apron not the main runway.

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Wed July 19, 2006:
This is too low! Looks scary - the main landing gear could kill spotters near fence.
