I don't drive, I fly.
Looks like a Lynx ...

Considering it has a long tail, slim build and the environment it is in, I would say it is a Caracal. :p
/me stops being pedantic.

wikipedia said:
though it has traditionally had the alternative names Persian Lynx, Egyptian Lynx and African Lynx, it is no longer considered to be an actual lynx [...]
... well, my guess wasn?t that far off then. :D

That seems low even for St. Maarten. It wouldn't have surprised me if the landing gear had hit the razor wire on the perimeter fence.

But then again, a 747 needs as much runaway as possible if it's gonna stop in time.

I don't know if it's a trick of the eye, but it does look like the fence bent back to me. whether that is from the force of the air or the landing gear, I don't know.

Wake turbulence would be my guess but I'm sure one of our resident aviation experts will clarify.
