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

A visitor from - posted Sat February 5, 2011:
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

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 30, 2011:
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?)

A visitor from - posted Wed November 4, 2009:
Breath taking view!

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 3, 2008:
Probably the closest I'd come to a carrier approach. Awsome shot.

A visitor from - posted Thu November 22, 2007:
A very nice cockpit view of Norman Manley International Airport with the Caribbean Sea as a beautiful background.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 20, 2007:
What a Tease Norman! i'm viewing this while working! but thank you for bringing me some much needed hope in this vision of beauty.

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue November 20, 2007:
Fantastic photo from a great angle of view.

A visitor from Algeria posted Sun July 1, 2007:
Best one :-)

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 2, 2007:
Love the contrast between the green of the airfield
and the beautiful blue caribbean. this is a great
shot of my hometown airport. by the way, this runway
is a lot longer than it appears.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue December 5, 2006:
Great Shot !

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 31, 2006:
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!

A visitor from Antigua And Barbuda posted Thu September 21, 2006:
Nice job keeping the horizon level, really great overview!

A visitor from Jamaica posted Mon July 3, 2006:
What a great shot from the pilot's view, i wouldn't mind seeing that in reality other than from my window seat.

A visitor from United States posted Sun May 14, 2006:
Magnificent Photo. Just spectacular! Evokes memories of my first solo 6 yrs ago in a Cessna 150 (6Y-JJK).

A visitor from Canada posted Fri May 12, 2006:
Is that 2 C-130's I see there on the ramp?
What are they doing there?

A visitor from Jamaica posted Fri May 12, 2006:
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...

Nice and sharp

A visitor from Australia posted Sun April 23, 2006:
Love it!

Great capture.

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 18, 2006:
I have never seen KIN airport from this angle. It's a fantastic shot of KIN. Great contrast between land and water.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Mon April 17, 2006:
Many airports that nearer to the water, has a dramatic views

A visitor from United States posted Fri April 7, 2006:
This is truely an impressive shot, the photographer took full advantage of all aspects of the view.

A visitor from Portugal posted Wed April 5, 2006:
Fantastic blue!

A visitor from Jamaica posted Mon April 3, 2006:
Excellent Picture Gary...They have done alot of work to Manley and Improvement work is still in progress....... I too did my first solo there in a Wings Jamaica C172(6Y-JHT)

A visitor from Brazil posted Sun April 2, 2006:
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!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun April 2, 2006:
One of the most beutifull places in the world i wish i was there.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 2, 2006:
First time I've seen an overall view of this airport ... a bit like a smaller Kansai. Nice.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat April 1, 2006:
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!

A visitor from Germany posted Sat April 1, 2006:
What a beautyful approach with the blue sea in the background...

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 1, 2006:
Real nice shot!!! Memories memories. Just need a few of Tinson now, before the Port takes over.

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 1, 2006:
Looks like paradise

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 1, 2006:
Great photo amazing

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 1, 2006:
Cool pic. The water surronding the runway is beautiful.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 31, 2006:
The runway is numbered, its very small, but I can make out 12! :) Look harder!

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 31, 2006:
Is the runway not numbered?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 31, 2006:
Truly Outstanding.

A visitor from Spain posted Fri March 31, 2006:
The Sea meeting the Sky, it´s the heaven!. I would be, we all would I think, the pilot in command there. Nice job Gary!

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 31, 2006:
Great airport and grat shot. Finally the rest of the world can see thet beauty that is Kingston-Manley Airport.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 31, 2006:
Perfect shot of this airport framed by the water at both ends. Makes me think the aircraft needs a tail hook to land here.

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 31, 2006:
Excellent photo of MKJP. just super. They don't come better than that.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri March 31, 2006:
Superbly taken you got all the important parts of the photo and what a beautiful day it looks there!

A visitor from United States posted Fri March 31, 2006:
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)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri March 31, 2006:
