Yet another perfect shot from Europix (love how sharp each of his/her photos are...insane...). The SXM angle is slowly becoming overshot--but it's still very catchy as there are lots of things to see that grab a viewer's attention. Bright 'n cheery.

It`s a very good background of this picture, whit very nice colors. And it seems a little bit "hairy", so close to the road...

That's what I call a great picture. Mostly the pics from SXM are only views from the beach. So you don't get to see the details of the aircraft. Should be a great experience though. Imagine, on that beach, surrounded by everything that is beautiful: women, a beach and planes, lots of planes =) =)

Angle is dead on.When I saw this I was pretty amazed at what if even one inch or two over would have done to the quality of the photo.Nice shot!

The A-340 combined with the low landeing in tropical St. Maarten makes for a perfect shot

I like looking at pics from this airport, however this is the best because it is from th opposite side most are taken and you get an idea on how low the plane really is with the shadow on the runway and the beach, not to metion the level you are at looking at the plane. I cant wait to go here one day. I will sit on the beach all day and night.

Love the shadow on the ground. And by the way, that is the island of SABA in the background on the horizon. Saba has a wonderfully tricky airport with a very short field and a huge drop to the sea on the end. Flying into Saba is a memorable experience.

Great shot, but somehow if I get the choice between that roof you are on and the beach with nice women, cheap beer and the rush of the airplane shooting over you, I think my choice would be very clear. Peace and love guys keep 'em coming.

Nice pic but if you were on the beach you'd get the Heinies for a buck, the sand in your shoes, the ladies to look at AND the sun on the tail!!!!
