Landing Plane Nearly Hits Tourist

Forget landing gear, this lucky tourist almost found out the meaning of landing ear when a plane skimmed the top of his head while taking a photo. As the light aircraft came in to the Gustaf III Airport in St Barts, one photographer tried to capture an once-in-a-lifetime image. Plane spotter Sebastien Politano caught the incredible scene at what is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world, renowned for its difficult landing strip. The photographer in the white t-shirt was crouched and primed with his camera when the aircraft approached the Caribbean runway.
