and probably 70mm for the larger ones (Sorry, that photo was not accepted by a.net, but I thought it was valid) The 100mm minimum on your 100-400 L IS is probably too much for the heavies from the rooftop. Get a 70-200 f4 L to cover both the heavies and little guys from the rooftop, without changing lenses.
Simpson Bay departing aircraft, your 100-400 will do nicely:
I was there in October 2005 and saw that they are building a new resort behind the Sunset Beach Bar that overlooks Maho from the other side. An angle that we have never seen before because it is simply not available right now. Maybe you can wait until that one opens in a year or two and give us the first uploads from your balcony! It will be a great winter photo spot.
In conclusion how much money do you have?
Take with you:
Just kidding, but it would be nice to have! Have fun!

If you've got a 10-22 definately take that!!!
I think my 24-70 ended up being my most used lens, although i did stick a 17-40 on for a KLM 744, and a fair few 10-22 shots. When I was up on the Sonesta roof it was mainly 100-400 action, although 100mm was a little dodgy for fitting in a 757 side on..could have done nicely with one of those new 24-105 f4/L.
