do you think the gpws was screaming pull up? or is that when they have the gear retracted?

if it did crash everyone would just sit there and be like "oh my" "ohh myy gooedddd" "holy shit" and not do nothing XD
Aw Clement
that plane is a boeing 737 max if you see carefull the wingtip
Corey Fields
It's just a go-around. Happens more often than people realize. High winds, wanted to try the approach again. No big deal.

I guess you could then call It wetjet
redeyes232
if you pause it and compare and look at the water you can see the down burst of air.
Stuart Hughes
that was a close call..

Honestly, the plane had to be about 100 feet above that water. maybe 90 or 80. I honestly think they could've saved the first approach with a little pilot skill magic.
Tru Groovin's MASTER
If you ask me the pilot done a terrific job, there was still quite a bit of space between the plane and the water, which means the pilot recognized that shit was going south quick, and aborted landing, then it looks like he or she nailed #2 perfectly, that runway would have to bug you out just a little every time you approached and landed, Kudos to the crew !!! And no I'm not a pilot but I play one on TV.

It was without doubt wind shear!
Sir Lancelot
As a Pilot who has flown this approach - no excuses
Kenny G Choonit
The infamous 737 cross wind shear problems. Boeing make a new jet already.

I feel like the pilot was trying to put on a show for the beach spotters and failed.

Keith Bramstedt
I don't think that's a 737. It looks like a 757.
MudPuddle and GamerBlitz
That's how low planes at that airport usually go -_-

Entertaining reading all the comments- pilots and wannabe pilots all getting so passionate. Bottom line- they almost stuck it in the drink a long way from threshold. Who cares what was actually going on in that cockpit!!! Bet they embellished the story to the chicks at the bar that night to get their tackle wet. Awesome Vid!

Pilot was about to amaze people on the ground. heyy. its st.maarten right?

Kane Brady
This is an everyday scenario at almost every airport on the planet.

Plane was most definately in toga mode already the cfm 56 engines spool up fast but not that fast.....
Just Another Arrogant Internet User
Don't worry guys, everyone here is clearly an expert pilot....
Cito Browne
That first approach looked like the approach that KLM Boeing 747 did at st Maarten a couple of years ago
Kyle Rider
That's what go around are for. And in the first approach the weather was way worse so that's probably why they were having a little trouble. Good job pilots
Franklin Holbrook
WINDS were bad
Prolinium
Dear God...that's a standard approach to minimums...nothing dramatic about this whatsoever.
