In 97 , we were lucky enough to be 'circling' Antigua on a catamaran (7hrs of a free bar is a bad thing ) , when a US lockheed starlifter came into view from behind at low level, he spotted us , 'waggled' his wings , and then performed a v fast ,steep climbout into the sun - it was Awesome !!
Aside from that , and i would love to go to SXM (especially on a MD11!), i would like to see a Antonov AN22 land there, as i think the noise of those 4 contra-rotating props at lo-level would be cool

I will be out of the horrible Toronto snow and sitting on Maho beach camera in hand by Sunday afternoon, for my 5th trip! Would love to see the Concorde - evidently it did land at SXM once, I believe around 1990, bringing French President Mitterand to the island to meet with Bush 1.
In the realm of the possible - KLM's new 777, Virgin A340, BA 744, Air France back with 747-400 (though the A340 is spectacular landing) or AF 777. From US carriers, a NW A330 or United 744.
I'd also like to see Air Canada land, preferably with an A340 - purely for selfish reasons - would like to travel down on board that rather than squished in Skyservice A320!
