The Gustaf III airport in St. Barts is considered the third most dangerous airport in the world. Airliners of many sizes come roaring in for a landing only a few feet over a traffic circle that stands on a hill. The departure isn't much better as planes cast shadows over sunbathers by merely a few feet as well. On this particular landing, a private plane comes a little too close for comfort to an enthusiastic photographer. This video was shot by St Martin local Politano Caters. Caters was testing his new 360 camera as the traffic circle located on the hill by the plane's approach. The photographer was nearly struck by the landing plane, and he claimed the tire had grazed his hand. Shouting "It hit my hand!" this photographer was lucky to have experienced only a near miss. An approach of only a few inches to the right could have removed the man's head. "I don't think he knows how lucky he was that the plane didn't hit him harder," say Caters.
It is pretty certain that this man was very lucky this day. I just have one questions; did he get the shot?
