Wallpaper Description:
Incoming airplanes approach the island on short final for Runway 10 flying low over the famous Maho Beach. At any other airport aircraft fly at the same altitude at that point in the approach. Pictures of low flying aircraft were published in several news magazines worldwide in early 2000 and looked so unreal that some were even disputed as fakes. The thrilling approaches and ease of access for shooting spectacular images made the airport one of the world's favorite places among planespotters. To meet changing international and local regulations a 150 meter safety extension was required.

I've been there and can tell you this wallpaper is of a true landing with no touch-ups. These landings are breathtaking.

St Maarten

The photo was taken from the deck of the Sunset Beach Bar. It is a daily routine for visitors to St Martin/Maarten to stand on the beach and get sand blasted by jet blast.
The airport is famous for its short landing strip — only 2,180 metres/7,152 ft, which is barely enough for heavy jets. Because of this, the planes approach the island flying extremely low, right over Maho Beach. Countless photos of large jets flying at 10--20 m/30-60 ft over relaxing tourists at the beach have been dismissed as photoshopped many times, but are nevertheless real. For this reason as well it has become a favorite for planespotters. ;)
