What Is Your Favorite St Maarten Video?

It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

Last one was sped up.

I was just there last week. Miss it already.

Standing under those jets literally takes the breath out of you.

Well, I would say it's time for a new 'classic' which I just uploaded:

Youtube doesn't work on the computer that I am currently on but my favorite is the one with kind of bad weather and its a KL 747-400 and it's the lowest I have ever seen!

I know that planes come in low. But I think most of the captions in the videos are exaggerated. Every now and then a plane may come in lower than normal. If you watch enough of the videos it becomes clear that most of the "extremely low very dangerous plane almost crashed" approaches are pretty normal for that airport.

There can not be favorite St. Martin and Innsbruck landings.
Just because there's too much of the same stuff appears every second day on a.net.

Both photo and video capturing is a complete distortion of reality.
And I have never watched ( or almost never) pics/video made, say, from a distance allowing objective assessment.

Gosh, there are so many airports around the world with amazing appoaches.
But it's always St. Martin and Innsbruck.

Say, I would die to see pics/videos from Svabald ENSB and a dozen of airports in Norway alone.
I am on EK 231/232. The rest is just jet lag.

EASILY my favorite one. AMAZING! Nothing like having a 744 depart RIGHT over you.
