You may have seen footage of the Gustaf III airport in Saint Barthélemy (a French Speaking Caribbean Island). It’s famous for the low and steep landings that pilots are required to do, as well as the low take-off over a beach at the end of the runway. People watch from both sides as planes make the daring landing. There’s tons of videos on youtube of it…but none like this!
First off, let me just do a slow applause (clap….clap….clap) for the guy that just happened to be filming with a high quality 360 camera. Seriously, the chances of capturing this so perfectly is amazing.
Anyway, back to the video. Standing at the top of the runway, hoping to capture a cool photo and get some likes on facebook, this guy didn’t realize that he was about to come within millimeters of death…Staring through the lens of his camera and obviously not paying attention to how close this small oncoming Cessna was the guy literally missed out on decapitation by less than inches. It literally can. not. get. closer. than. this. The guys head went in between the freaking landing gear! It’s amazing the propellor didn’t hit him.
This guys is lucky to be alive, and I don’t think he even realizes it. His girlfriend obviously doesn’t as she jus giggles a little bit like not much happened…
If you still haven’t gotten your fill of crazy plane landings. Here’s 37 minutes of airplane landings from the Gustaf III airport!
And here’s another still of this man pooping himself.
