Hello fellow aviation fans
'Chris' in the aviation forum brilliantly brought to my attention the possibility of downloading or watching clips on St. Maarten a few days ago, so I thought I would expand on that as you can watch clips of BKK and SAN as well.
It is available on Media Player at:
They are excellent clips, BUT I recommend DSL connection or at least 56K bc they come out slow on my computer but great on my friends' who has DSL.
Hey, it's better than nothing and its free at least!

Thanks for the link! This is some AWESOME SAN footage! I go to the University of SD about 5 min north of the airport and I love to photograph the planes coming in over the hills and all, and this is just stunning to watch! Thanks!

There used to be an area in Los Angeles that was similiar to St. Maarten. It was right next to a restaurant called the Proud Bird. You parked in a lot right next to it and the planes would roar over at very very low altitude because the runway, like at Maarteen, was right over the fence. I hate that this place has now been fenced off. It was my favorite place to spot.
