Very very good that they didn't try and "salvage" that approach. Go around and give it another go.

Those pilots did the right actions necessary to prevent westjet's first major accident, good for them
Angel Luvene
it´s because the airport is near the water. nothing wrong

ok internet pilots with 3 hours of flight time in fsx teach real certified airline aviators what they did wrong

Took 45 min to pull the seats out of the crews ass cheks

Almost crash!? I don't know how much familiar you are with airplanes carriers but i see no "almost" crash landing here, it's more realistic so say a "missed approach" and even that, they actually did the safest move here by aborting the landing ;) Canadian pilots are among the finest and qualified crew you can fly! ;)
Tom thx
wind shear

And after this incident tourists still stand under the planes and try to touch their wheels

WestJet was about to turn into WetJet.... xD
nearly would've been a 2nd Hudson effect

Great and rare catch buddy!
its like my first landing on FSX :D

Considering we never saw the moments leading up to the very start of the
video, and taking the weather conditions into consideration, we might
be witnessing an AWESOME RECOVERY from a micro-burst...?

Their vertical speed may have been a bit excessive & they may have not realized it. I can only imagine that that particular airport in St Maarten is not the easiest airport to land. I'd love to fly to St Maarten one day. It looks so beautiful there. Love that airport.. always watching videos that people post while being there.
FYI, i am a pilot and aircraft mechanic. If the 737 landed in the water, its not a "CRASH LANDING". too many people who know very little about aircraft associate everything with the word crash. second of all, it could not take 45 minutes to go around. it would have run out of fuel. An aircraft only carries enough fuel for the trip plus another 35 minutes more for diversion. a go around only takes a few minutes

What a stupid title, just choose for clickbait!!

a downdraft that impeded on his runway approach perhaps?

I was hoping it could have maintained altitude for 10 seconds more and decapitated some of those annoying people on the beach.
Jet Gardner
Oh bullshit, I've been there on vacation and that's NORMAL because the end of the runway is at the ocean, and missed approaches are common because of the short runway and the mountains at the end of it. THUMBS DOWN
Bird Man
What did he set his QNH to ? Quack Quack
When I see this all I can hear is Charlie saying, "What were you doing there?"
Oh god it doesn't look like there were survivors

I suspect shear and the 45 min. timing for the second approach was about waiting for conditions to improve. Got gas? Might as well wait.
And people still think it's safe to stand on that beach?
POF 415
Wow that was close 😨😆
the headline is bullshit
Mohd Kamal
im not a pilot but i think the heavy wind and heavy rain cause this to happen..
Hi This is no close call. It is just a descent rate more tha usual mostly due to windshears that you have very often on final approach of costal airports. The pilot was in control because you see both engines were rather full thrust with flaps I think at 1.
So well managed/
Best regards
Nothing wrong with the first approach the pilots were checking out the bikinis on the beach.

OMG, just OMG

jesus! has there ever been a major incident at this aitport ?
Looks like there may have been gusting winds out over the water as is evident by the deck umbrellas as the jet makes the first go-around. maybe a microburst judging by the way the jet was positioned at the beginning of the clip, almost like it was recovering from a downdraft.
Aurelijus Paulauskas
almost doesnt counts
Hey, ATCPilot! God 1 million clicks on this bait? Guess what? I GOT ADBLOCK! MWAHAHAHA.
Glad the pilot aborted that first landing attempt. I don't think he/she would have made it successfully.
CPT Wee tu lo
A go around is always an option.
YYC Flyguy
Seems to be a lot of MS flight sim pilots talking shit on here. The flight crew recognized their error and made a successful go-around. What's the problem??

if im not mistaken, TNCM is all visual, no ILS and its a bit windy too. wind may have pushed off glide slope...
