She missed the normal touch down zone, was very high above the beach and thought she may abort the landing, nevertheless she slams on all her break to bring it to a full stop at the end of runway, this photo won't happen if she touch down on the normal zone. [Nikon D100]

Congratulation Sam - the master of moments.
There is only hardly any a chance to capture such late touch down at SXM. Excelent job.

These kinds of shots are the REALLY cool SXM shots. Although I could hardly say 'more of this' as we don't want trouble to come one day... Together with a recently posted air-to-air(!) shot of a US 752 this is the coolest SXM shot ever to me. 'City of Atlanta' with the Swan on her back!
