How often do the "reverse departures" happen ?
Would like to have an idea for planning a trip to SXM
next year, is there a particular time of year that this is more likely to happen.
It would be good to get more variety of shots than just over the beach, not that I am complaning about the beach shots but 2 days out of 7 with reverse departures would be nice to give the photographs variety.
My plan for when I do get the chance to go is 3 days on Maho beach, a day midway along the runway at the beach that runs along the runway, and a day up on the hill taking shots of departures almost head on.

A couple of other questions about the hill if I may.
How do I get to the hill, by car,public transport,walking?
How long would it take from the resort of Maho beach?
Flying may not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price.
