‧‧‧ One of 738

Insane Boeing 747 -400 landing on the Netherland Antilles, at the Princess Juliana airport. Even experienced pilots consider it a tough spot to land their jets, because the bare minimum length runway forces pilots to come in extremely low, approx. thirty feet over the fence seeing as how they have to make visual landings since the airport has no ILS.
Check the coast map or read, what Wiki says:

The airport is famous for its short landing strip – only 2,180 metres/7,152 ft, which is barely enough for heavy jets. Because of this, the planes approach the island flying extremely low, right over Maho Beach.

Another good landing pilot, this one is filmed during the landing phase on the Princess Juliana airport.

An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air. It counters the force of gravity by using either static lift or by using the dynamic lift of an airfoil, or in a few cases the downward thrust from jet engines.
