    Never forget go-arounds are free...

    This guy may have been just a little too eager to hit the beach... Oh well, there could be worse places to do this I suppose.

    dumbass! I hope he was having a very bad emergency that made a go around impossible...if not, see my first comment!

    what an idiot. if i float more then 2/3 of a runway i'm going around. hope his insurance refused to cover the damages.
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Forget 2/3 if your not down in the first third of the runway at a place like that it is time to slam them forward. Got to love the camera guys reaction. "That kind of.........blows"

    Watching this landing made my day. I thought this was the runway at St. Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles. Is this runway at St. Bars?

    Never forget go-arounds are free...
    Well, not exactly free, since the extra time is costing you more $$, but it sure as heck isn't nearly as much as the damage to the plane from running off the end!
