Sebastian Thoma filmed this quite remarkable video by Princess Juliana Airport in St. Maarten where a flight from Toronto nearly made contact with the ocean upon arrival to the island. According to Sebastian, the plane came in too low during stormy weather. The pilot held the aircraft over the airport for 45-50 minutes, before safely landing.

      There seemed to be a wind during the first approach and depending on the direction the pilot may have had problems keeping the correct altitude. When the filming started, the plane may have dropped due to losing lift and the pilot was taking corrective action by pulling up and thereby over shooting the run way. It happened often enough during a storm, it's just that its not usually filmed.
