Just heard that a plane went down in Maho Bay (the ocean) on approach to Juliana at SXM. No specifics yet. I'll give an update when I know more.

I hope it wasn't somebody screwing around and trying to come in too low.

Hope everyone aboard is OK.

Well I believe no big airliners at night?

So a small plane?

Single engine plane with 7 pax coming from SBH. It went down on aproach approx. 5 miles from the field. No report on casualties yet. Rescue teams report it sank. My best guess it is the Cessna Caravan 208 commuter that runs SXM-SBH. It is the only single engine I know that takes 7 pax.

Is it a plane operated by St Barth Commuter that crashed ? (It has 7 pax, one beside the pilot and 6 very tight places).

Thanks for the information - I never know what are the planes between SXM and SBH, only the carrier names !

The plane that crashed was therefore private, I suppose...

I was just thinking of the number of spotters at SXM, if there was ever a plane crash:

"Well, we have photographic evidence of the crash from 11 different angles, and two complete videos of the accident."

Glad there are no fatalities though.

Well at least it wasn't a bigger plane. After I read the title I was preparing for something bigger. Hopefully the pilot is ok..

When I read the title I was also imagining something like an American 757 or AF A340 in the water in flaming pieces.

Good to know nothing too catastrophic,

as for the "11 different angles of photographic evidence" bit, my guess is that if any aircraft of size went down too close to the field on approach, more than a couple of those photographers might be going with it.
