In a place already known for its close encounters with airplanes, this might be one of the closest ever.
Video posted online last month showed a PAWA Dominicana flight coming so close to people at Maho Beach on Saint Martin that it almost looked like they could touch the MD-83 aircraft:
The description on YouTube said the incident took place on January 6 as the plane approached Princess Juliana International Airport.
"The low height was no stunt, could see from distance the plane was banking a lot on approach," Dez Rosswess, who posted the clip, wrote in the description.
There's also a photo of the flyby on the Airliners.net website.
