Awesome shot, but complete exaggeration by the pilot - as if such an approach and angle of flaring were necessary on a Cessna... He can consider himself lucky to achieve passing over the perimeter fence!

This was a way under approach ! Is that sand on the bottom of the wing - from a previous underapproach !

Good shot, if you look closely the Cessna is not using flaps. This means they were coming in fast as a low fly-by, then they probably slowed down and landed.

No flaps? This i not a landing.. It's a takeoff! Backwards.

Engine-out on short final and he would end in the middle of the crowded beach. Nothing impressive about this way of flying.

Awesome shot! Looks like a lot of fun. To the poster making the flaring comment, the plane is flying straight and level in a clean config, not "lucky" to clear the fence at all.

But dangerous to the beach goers who have a right to be there.
