    Wow...dude where have you been? St. Maarten is one of the most well known spotting locations around the world. That video is as real as it gets.

    Here's a link of photos from Maho Beach to familiarize yourself with this wild location.

    Wow I never knew that, I definitely need to go there one day.

    Also if you pause the video at about :21 it looks like if a big rig would come it would rip that plane apart.

    Not only was I at SXM, but I was there for this landing! It was an amazing trip. here is the very crap shot i took:


    this is the original video posted by who I assumed is the videographer:

    "mateu21 (2 years ago)
    NOT FAKE!
    this looks like the one on July 2, 2006
    If so, I was an eye witness? to this landing.

    This was taken on July 2, 2006 - I can not believe that mateu21 recognized it ?!!? It just started to rain and the sky was completely dark (see the clip again). This pilot had a lot of problems getting this plane down. A lot of crosswind as well....
    Anway, SXM is the? best place in the world for these things..."
