If this is faked it's very well done. The Gustaff III Airport on the Caribbean island of St. Barts is known for its steep descent on approach and is ranked third-most dangerous airport in the world by History Channel's the “Most Extreme Airports” series.

Sebastien Politano of Saint Martin, Guadeloupe was testing a new 360 degree camera and caught an interesting moment that should more than pay for his investment. The man in his video told Politano he felt the wheel of the airplane touch his right hand, according to the Daily Mail, one of several credible media sites reporting the video as real. Politano told Caters News that the man kept saying “it hit my hand, it hit my hand.”

Craters TV published the video below saying, "Forget landing gear, this lucky tourist almost found out the meaning of landing ear when a plane skimmed the top of his head while taking a photo. As the light aircraft came in to the Gustaf III Airport in St Barts, one photographer tried to capture an once-in-a-lifetime image. Plane spotter Sébastien Politano caught the incredible scene at what is considered one of the most dangerous airports in the world, renowned for its difficult landing strip. The photographer in the white t-shirt was crouched and primed with his camera when the aircraft approached the Caribbean runway."
