'Yes,' the Wide-Body Heavy Jets have to come across the Beach 'Low,' but this Guy in a Falcon Business Jet is just showing off and absolutely did not need to be that 'Low' over St Maarten's Maho Beach! Princess Juliana's runway 10/28 is 7,546 feet long, more than enough for a little 'Falcon!' The Guy's a 'Hotdog,' and as far as Jets go, He's got a little 'Wiener!'

A visitor from - posted Fri May 4, 2012:
That has to be one of the lowest approaches ever. That guy could literally stand up and touch the landing gear. I hope nobody was riding the fence, because they would have been run over.

What a shot off. Absolutely no reason to land like that, even at SXM. Great photo though!

"go out of the sun^^"

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 29, 2009:
I don't think the spectator is as close at it seems. The shadow is an optical illusion and the man is probably closer to the edge of the left wing. You can see the suns reflection on the right side of the fuselage, casting a shadow down and to the left.

A visitor from Indonesia posted Mon December 28, 2009:
Look at the guy sitting right beneath the plane, as if nothing special happened at the moment! nice catch!

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 30, 2009:
This is a excellent shot! I feel like I'm in the cockpit with the captain. Seriously, this in one of the bet landing shots I've seen...

A visitor from Ireland posted Fri February 27, 2009:
This for me is the ultimate SXM photo(I have spent a week there).The aircraft I reckon is 12 ft above the sand but not decending..hence the high AOA,he holds this to over the fence(around 5ft+)This is pure speculation the co Pilot is looking right for a visual reference re.altitude.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon February 23, 2009:
That's the only perfect picture on the whole world

That guy sitting directly under the jet, has the nerves of steel.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu November 20, 2008:
Great shot but thats one very dangerous landing.

Surely not going to be able to cross the threshold? Has to be a go-around. Great pic!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun October 12, 2008:
Too low! Beach spectators! Woop! Woop!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu September 18, 2008:
I have heard about pilots needing to land quickly but this takes the biscuit!. No way on this earth would a sensible Pilot bring in his plane so low on approach, when the runway he is landing on is long enough to take a 747! Great picture

A visitor from United States posted Tue September 16, 2008:
Yikes! i wouldn't be this close if i were you

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 7, 2008:
I find it ironic that this cowboy pilot is flying an aircraft based in Texas (state flag on the tail). There is no need to come in this low. A Falcon has one of the shortest landing distance of any jet, so why risk ripping the gear off? Stupid...

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 3, 2008:
Ahh! i wouldn't fly this low if were you.

A visitor from Guatemala posted Fri July 18, 2008:
Was the FO trying to checkout the girls at the pool in the hotel... if you see closer he's lookin like TOO LOW.. TOO LOW PULL UP!

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 19, 2008:
Lol i bet pilots do that just to scare the life out of people on the beach

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 19, 2008:
Wow thats low it seems like that guy under the plane could just stand up and grab onto the landing gear

A visitor from United States posted Sat June 14, 2008:
The guy under the plane doesn't look phased at all.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu May 8, 2008:
The photograph is super. The scary thing is seeing how far the fence away still is, and seeing how low the airfract is at that moment bound to be very close to clipping that fence. Looks like hes trying to pull up a bit

A visitor from Germany posted Fri May 2, 2008:
Very steep approaching.... great shot
i wouldn't like to be under this plane with these pilots

A visitor from Australia posted Thu May 1, 2008:
I think the guy on the beach changed his underpants after that!

Timing. Everything in this photo screams "Timing!"... the angle of the airplane, the height of the airplane, the shadow, and... ooops, almost forgot, the idiot on the beach sitting smack-dab in the middle of an over-water approach to a short runway! (I would capitalize "idiot", but the instructions for this comment page tell me not to use CAPS!)

Unbelieveable!!!!!!!!! Must have came pretty close to the fence too!

I don't know what the guy thinks, but is very cool.

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 29, 2007:
This photo is excellent. IMHO the PF should have been a bit higher on short finals- why in the world was he so low?! Anyhow, the photo is great not only because of the location, but it captured such a high AOA and I love the timing concerning the shadow over the beachers!

I bet the person in the shadow, after being frozen in place by fear and disbelief, ran to change his pants afterwards! I don't see how this clown cleared the fence, unless he was climbing, which is another scary thought!! But that could explain his AOA.

Someone said they can tell he's too slow... I'd bet he's on that throttle full-on at this moment till he clears that fence... ;-)

Why is too low if the plane has plenty of runway ahead.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 21, 2006:
Good photo, but it seems like at this rate they are going to clip the fence! I belive that, they did a little bit of adjusting in order to clear that fence.
