WATCH: One Of The Lowest Landings Yet At Maho Beach

Every day, the flight path to the runway at Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten is a spectacle.
Planes about to land come in off the sea and fly right over a thin stretch of beach adjacent to the airport, so low that you swear you could reach out and touch them when in reality you can’t.
Or can you?
Videographer Dez Rosswess was on the beach last month when a PAWA Dominicana Airlines MD-83 came in for a landing.
"The low height was no stunt, could see from distance the plane was banking a lot on approach," Rosswess wrote on his YouTube site.
Ironically, PAWA Dominicana, the national carrier for the Dominican Republic, just resumed operations in August of 2015 after a three-year hiatus. It flies to Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten.
“I Always seem to get lucky there,” Rosswess wrote. “I just have to be in the right place at the right time.”
For this, he sure was.
