Tricky airport to land at

There was a crash at this airport earlier this week. This video is not of the crash but of an AA 757 (I believe) landing at the same place.

If you want to see something really impressive check landings at St. Barts, If you find one with a Cessna 402 it's most likely me landing, I've never seen a vid of anyone else doing it in a 402.
