From the previous days, I knew when AF or KL were overhead the airport, they needed about 10' to complete the circuit and land. I could not resist running back to the beach when I saw her overflying the terminal while I was busy with the check-in. No idea if I would make it... 8' running from inside the terminal to the beach... Making this classic SXM shot and running another 8' back, boarding and underway to another destination... Sometimes last minute decisions and risks are rewarding...

It's nice to see a different angle, I get bored of the same type of shot from SXM photographers, well done.
