Coming in too high... Way too high. It's astounding. One of these days, one these planes is going to overshoot the runway. The US Army should go in, and do something about it.

To the commentor from China, I'm pretty sure he isn't going to overshoot the runway. If a 747-400 can land there, the Twin Otter can land halfway on the runway and still would be able to stop in time!

Nice capture. The "Danger" sign on the girls top is quite fitting for this place!
To the comment form China: A Twin-otter certainly does not need the full runway for its landing. So no porblem if it is too high.

Definitely not too high -- it's a small aircraft on final. He'll probably touch down farther back than the jets do.

Too high? Looks like a very normal approach too me. And anyway, it's a twin otter, they can land on a penny if needed.

Actually, the Twin Otters are usually very high crossing the beach as they want to touch down by the ramp so they have a short taxi.
