Also performing an ultra low approach, like yours.Fantastic shot.Best.Miquel Egea.Sorry , I had not seen the second pic, that´s more or less ,like the real one, i´m talking about.

tsk, tsk, Paul ... I think you landed before the threshold. I wonder how long that fence has been there. I wonder how often they have to repair or replace that fence. Beautiful screenshot

Actually I landed where I was supposed to. TNCM is not your typical every day airport and approaches are done just like this in the real world. (Very Low, which is why St. Maarten is one of best plane spotting airports in the world).

I think that's a pretty classic-looking TNCM landing. Your scenery is missing the doofusses who stand there at the fence and get knocked over. If you look at his first pic, there's not much of a threshold there...and at 140 knots he's gonna cover that little bit in a hurry, and you gotta get on the hard stuff really fast. Nice job.
