I am a Jamaican. I have landed here before and I did not realise it was so beautiful. Kingston is to your left, "Port royal" is to the right (it is the sight of one of the worlds largest gold ship wreck --$$billions)

Perfect shot of this airport framed by the water at both ends. Makes me think the aircraft needs a tail hook to land here.

I did my first solo off of this runway, back in 1991! It's a lot longer than it looks; the clapped-out Cessna 150 (is there any other kind?) reached circuit height well before the end, despite taking off from the first intersection on a sweltering day. Ah, 6Y-JJK, I miss you, you old dog!

First time I've seen an overall view of this airport ... a bit like a smaller Kansai. Nice.

Could you imagine this situation?: "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking...(catching a breath)... you have to be prepared to 'landing' on the water; we have no brakes...!" :-)
Nice shot and marvellous place!

I have never seen KIN airport from this angle. It's a fantastic shot of KIN. Great contrast between land and water.

Likewise proud to be Jamaican. I have had views of KIN when landing... but only from the window seats of an American or Air Jamaica flight. This is something that we all can appreciate! For those who are not Jamaican, the road behind the end of runway 12 is the Palisadoes road - going east, you will be ending in Port Royal, and going west - you are heading for Harbour View, Kingston, St. Thomas, etc... the scene is magnificent, and just as exciting as the SXM approach! Loving the shot - its me me right in the heart...

Is that 2 C-130's I see there on the ramp?
What are they doing there?

What a great shot from the pilot's view, i wouldn't mind seeing that in reality other than from my window seat.

The plane about to taxi out appears to look much like a WN 737! :-) LOL! Perhaps it will happen one day! Great shot of a final approach to another aircraft carrier like airport!

Fabulous shot! Looks like it would be a great place to take "SXM" type arrival and departure shots. (I wonder if they'll let you?)

SXM-style shots? Just don't try it from a fishing canoe in among the approach lights - saw one or two of those get flipped by jet blast :D

It's like a carrier landing. It would be exciting at night!
