Extreme and insane low approach in SXM by this MD-83 of PAWA. After the Embraer last year, I wasn't expecting to see anything similar, but this PAWA appears on my second day back to the paradise to prove me that I was wrong. Congratulations to the crew for the beautiful landing.

Very low indeed and I believe those who standing almost near the fence can touch the wheels ;-) Thanks for great action photo from paradise! Brgds, Yerbol - Kazakhstan Spotting Club

Wow like I told you before this is a stunner, Thiago! Amazing shot! Somehow you are lucky with low SXM approaches. Julien

Yes insanely low!! Probably greatest thrill for all there...but one of these days these hot dog pilots are going to get too close! Then they will have to close maho beach. It's getting ridiculous!

Equally impressive as it is irresponsible!

I wonder how it even cleared the perimeter fence! There may be an accident one day!

I could think of many other places of paradise better than here. Too many people. Like a cruise ship.
