SXM Arriving And Departing Photos

Fri Mar 29, 2013 5:33 pm

Generally what side of the aircraft would you have to sit on to get an arrival shot of SXM, and a departing shot. Thanks.

On departure, I'd say the right side. For arrivals either side would be fine, although I'd choose the right side again.

On departures - right is no doubts.

On approach, especially from Europe - I'd say for me left is preferable. You my have nice shots of Sint-Marten island while approach (from the right is just Anguila islnd) and on short final first you have Sonesta view and second - you make photo by the sun, not opposite.

I generaly would recommend you to look through the DB to compare abilities. There are no many shots like that there however at least some are.

Fyodor

Thanks for the info Fyodor, I changed my seats this morning. By the way, that departure shot is killer! I hope I can get a shot similar to yours.
