F-OHQK (cn 8238) Great view on top of the hill as aircraft approaching rwy 10 pass right in front of your face, as evidenced by my wife standing under the wing. That's close!

I'm looking at the girl :) Nice and dangerous final

Nice picture!!!! The brown car reminds of Colombia.

A visitor from Spain posted Sat July 25, 2009:
I hope they watch for buses and trucks before doing those passes.

"Tower, Caraibes missed miss, I mean, going around".

A visitor from United States posted Sun January 25, 2009:
This shot truly evokes thoughts of the miracle of flight. Hovering above the road, cars, and woman is a machine not much larger than the automobiles but that can beat down the air with its wings and fly. And, it's going 100 mph :). Flying really is a miracle 5*****

A visitor from Germany posted Thu December 4, 2008:
Only 3 meters over the street is normal in SBH, and then a nose down approach to the 500 metres short runway...you captured it really good

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 4, 2008:
I would have executed a go around if I caught eye with that fine specimen standing there. :)

A visitor from South Africa posted Tue October 28, 2008:
Amazing Capture, But even more so for those that know where the actual strip is.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 4, 2008:
Nice job! Very crisp photo, and good detail. I'm impressed you were able to track a fast, low flying aircraft that well. I've flown into SBH, and that extremely low approach is normal there; the runway is very short and the local geography makes landing difficult.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat July 5, 2008:
Don't know if there's a perspective effect but it seems very very low limit ..

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun April 27, 2008:
Get a 747 to land there and SXM sucks :P,its really weird to approach the runway "down the hill"

A visitor from Germany posted Fri April 25, 2008:
Great capture! is your wife carrying your heineken? that's what i call spotting!

A visitor from - posted Thu April 24, 2008:
Mmm.... if i were there i would like to throw a rock into the plane! kidding... Nice shot you are absolutely lucky to capture that plane. Maybe the pilot got an overspeeding ticket?

A visitor from Australia posted Thu April 24, 2008:
Great angle nice and low aircraft and background

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu April 24, 2008:
Looks awesom! Nice job!

A visitor from Spain posted Thu April 24, 2008:
Well done!!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 24, 2008:
Wow, that's amazing. How low can you go?

A visitor from India posted Thu April 24, 2008:
Looks too dangerously Low. Hope the pilot does not get distracted with such nice people around ;)
