Well I don’t think this really needs a comment. It speaks for itself. Truly SXM trademark at its best. If he were much lower he would have gotten the fence and these guys’ heads. Not very often you see grown men ducking down there. What an awesome weekend this was. Thanks guys!

Holy s*** this is by far one of the lowest 744 landing in SXM I've seen so far thanx for sharing this great moment. And of course touching down on the runup part of the rwy...

Wow!!! This is a really low approach. I think there is less than one meter between wheels and man head. Excellent timing my friend.

It captures the awesome spectacle of 300 tons of jumbo jet about to touch down on the very edge of runway 09 at Princess Juliana having just shaved the heads of the bathers on Maho beach. It also shows the skill and precision flying of the 747 pilot(Captain?)although it must be said, he would appear to have got just a little bit below the glideslope! However one must bear in mind that the approach here is 'Non Precision'! IE: VOR/DME!

See the guy lying on the sand and enjoy the plane crashing on him !!!
See another guy so afraid that leaning on the fence.
What if, what if, I would jump up and touch the wheels instead. Haaaaaaa.....

This pilot is landing way short of the actual runway. The yellow arrows show that the threshhold for landing is further up. This section of the runway is for emergency overrun.

I have a pilot friend who says this is extremely low. Apparently a downdraft hit him before he went over the road. In a video I have seen you can hear the KL pilot put more power in his engines to power him over the sand. Even so he only just makes it!

A fabulously dramatic photo based on the sheer size of the airplane and the absurdly low approach punctuated by the man ducking at the fence to keep from having his head knocked off by a tire moving at 150 mph. Since there is no precision approach guidance (ILS) the pilot has to "hand fly" the approach based on visual cues. He erred low as evidenced by actually landing on the displaced threshold (not technically the runway) which is a violation of regulations. Has the fence ever been knocked down?

It must be quite loud hissing that just the wheels make that close.. then add the hissing from the rest of the plane.. plus sound of engines.
Not to mention that you may think for a while that this is the time when it actually lands short...

It looks very low, but it really isn't. Go to youtube.com and search for klm 747 landing at princess juliana airport (or sxm) and see for yourself. I live in st.maarten i have seen klm land many times, by the angle of this picture is looks like the bird is very close to the ground but it really isn't. even if that guy jumped as high as he could he wouldn't even be close to the giant. I've been to this beach many times, as a matter of fact i once stayed the whole day just to watch planes land. And iv'e flown allot and trust me it isn't even close to the ground when it passes.

I laugh at people that say it is irresponsable of the pilot for coming in at such a low approach.First of all ... planes of all kinds need to get low to land ... duh. And secondly,if you are not a pilot and if you have never landed a 747 or any other type of aircraft at this particular airstrip you shoulden't say the pilot is being irresponsable in his/her approach. This is a text book landing and it is nothing less than perfect. If anyone is irresponsable it's the people who decided to keep a public beach so close to a busy runway ,but as usual nothing will be done about it until a disaster happens.

Agreed. It's private pilot level knowledge that displaced thresholds are not to be landed on. If I was acting PIC, I'd only make a PIC decision to use it in the event of a no-flap landing or stuck throttle. Stay in your lane and comment about the picture, not the piloting unless you actually know what you are talking about. This is a prime example of a failed go-around/failed proficiency check

Ok so there is another photo taken by Chris Starnes of this event. Captured mabey a second after this it shows that the wheels have not yet touched down after the first Chevron on the threshold. A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 4, 2009: "Look on youtube at the video posted by sergejbojic [which shows this landing]..." If you did this you would be able to hear the pilot increase power twice. The first is about 5 seconds before reaching the threshold, the second is just as the nose passes over the beach and it sounds like their ramming it to well above 60%. I'm no 747 pilot, but I doubt this is a case of being "brave"or "gutsy"nor do I think it is a private competition. Other people have said this and I would agree ... suddenly lost altitude on approach due to the forces of nature. Very cool and very, very infrequent shot.

Well if the danger zone is really 1175 ft (= c.350 meters!)for an A330 at t/o power, then I should have been smoked countless of times, And I never got anywhere near SXM. Sure you can't go stand right behind 'em, but whatever anyone might want to prove with this shot, I think Airbus is 'exaggerating', or perhaps better, overestimating.
