[Canon 1D Mark IV + Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8 L] I've seen my fair share of low arrivals at SXM, but this JetBlue Embraer ERJ-190 topped them all. Surprisingly few people were observed doing the "Maho Beach squat", fearing imminent danger.

Amazing shot, but is there really any reason for an E190 to be this low at SXM? Even fully loaded they shouldn't have a problem stopping on the 7,500ft runway, right?

It's all fun and games until someone clips the fence! Top shot, showing a top approach!

Great photo! Btw I think this is definitely Too Low! Pilot wanted to impress someone but it seems that it was too risky especially for passengers.

I can't get the perspective straight! Crazy pic!

Flared up waaay too early. This explains the height and the pitch attitude. Not good other than for an impressive photography!

Great capture that should get this pilot canned. There is just NO need to approach this low in such a pukey little aircraft unless you're trying to let everyone know you have a huge set by 'tea bagging' them as you fly over.

Lol you people are no fun... I give the pilot a round of applause for helping make such a spectacular photo :)
