Although it may look Photoshopped, it’s not. It’s a landing at runway 10 at Princess Juliana International Airport, St. Maarten, in the Netherlands Antilles. The runway is short, 7546 feet, and large, heavy aircraft need every inch, and so touch down as soon as possible. This makes for some hair raising plane spotting for those on the beach.
Here is a video of a 747 landing:
Here is a video of a landing of a 747 as seen from the cockpit. Notice how the plane has to turn around at the end of the runway and taxi back up the runway to reach the turnoff.

It has been designated the World’s Most Dangerous Airport.
