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

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.
