Remark Photographer
Spectacular final approach for RWY 09 onboard Air France A340-313X (F-GNII). Very special thanks to the crew and, in particular, to my friend Jeff, captain on this flight, for having made this photo possible.

From this angle, you can see why the planes come so low over the beach. Interesting to see plenty of tyre marks before the TDZ and some even on the piano keys! Paradise.

Gorgeous water! I love how tiny the people on the beach look, especially considering the view we typically see from the beach. Great unique angle of an exciting spotting location.
