Go to Maho Beach. Once you are there, wait until a plane looms on the horizon over the ocean and starts coming towards you. As the plane gets lower and lower until it looks like it is going to land ON the beach, it will become evident quite quickly where the best place to be is.

Best spots at SXM are at Sunset Bar and the beach itself. If you want to stand at the fence and feel the thrust wear snorkeling goggles. Sunglasses will blow away. Best thrust is from the 727'S, MD'S or other 3 holers. Some times the crew will stand on the brakes and throttle up giving an extra boost of sand and dust toward the fence.
Check out the whole SXM db for ideas. There is one shot that includes the whole perimeter of the Princess.
If you have time you will find new perspectives on SXM. The opportunities are endless. I can't wait to get back with some new glass.
Have a BLAST and share the dumpster!
