I would like to point out a few things in your source.
First, look at the bottom right picture. It shows an altitude of about 30 feet, guessing that an average airport fence is about 9 feet high (forgive me if I'm a little bit off, I usually use SI units). Then, if you look more closely, you see that the plane is not actually right above the fence at that point, but quite a bit past it, which means that it was higher when it passed the fence. So, no big problem there.
Then the pictures of the bottom of the airplane. You notice how the airplane looks very distorted, like it has a massive nose. This is because smartphone cameras generally have wide-angle lenses - an extreme example would be a fish-eye lens. They severely distort the intuitive concept of distances (closer looks VERY close, further away looks VERY far away)- if you try to inspect it a little bit more carefully, suddenly you realize the plane is about 4-5 times the height of the quite large tree in the center of the picture. Again, no big problem.
Then there's the picture of the plane going over the road. This is shot with a narrow angle lens (probably a good zoom lens or even a telephoto lens). This has the opposite effect of a wide-angle lens: things that are in reality separated a lot look really close to each other - my favorite example being this picture. So, while it looks like it's directly at the top of the hill, in reality it's probably much further away.
Then, finally: even if all of the above were false, it still wouldn't be a big problem. A stabilized approach is a stabilized approach. A lower glide angle makes some things quite a bit easier: your engines are spooled up higher which makes them more reactive, and your touchdown will be smoother than Mick Jagger's moves. Downsides: more fuel consumption, more noise and usually more turbulent winds, which was specifically not the case according to the story (indeed, they went low to avoid those winds).
