Anyone who was at SXM
on 4/20/2004 saw the American Airlines 757 come in to high and do a go around. It was pretty cool. you could see from way out it was coming in to high. As soon as the 757 crossed over the runway threshold, you could hear the increase in power, the landing gear go up and partial flap retraction. It took about 10 minutes for the AA
757 to circle back around and finally land again. Everyone on the beach was clapping!
What was just as interesting, was in that 10 minute span, another AA
757 had positioned itself for take-off. So, you had two AA
757's facing off against each other on the same runway. And of course, I have to forget my camera, missed photo op. Just thought I'd share!
Anyone else see this?
