Some people will do almost anything for a great photo, but this guy's shot was nearly memorable in all the wrong ways. 

An unidentified tourist snapping photos of a plane landing at Gustaf III Airport on the Caribbean island of St. Barts came within an inch or so of having his head taken off by the aircraft, as this still from the video shows:

Amazingly, the man continued to snap photos, even turning around to get more pictures of the plane after it passed.

Caters TV, which posted the 360-degree video taken by plane spotter Sébastien Politano, called Gustaf III "one of the most dangerous airports in the world, renowned for its difficult landing strip."

Along with nearly hitting the photographer, the plane came within a couple of feet of a motorcyclist, a photo posted on Facebook by SXSEB shows:
