The pilot could almost reach out & grab a beer from that guy on the beach!

This photo is a one in a million shot. Must have taken a lot of patience to get it. Great photo works.

A visitor from France posted Mon October 16, 2006:
It is really surprising !

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu October 5, 2006:
Must have been a full flight, look at the wing flex !!
Great photo, five stars.

A visitor from United States posted Mon August 28, 2006:
An airliners paradise. I really like the shadow of the plane on the beach.

A visitor from United States posted Sun August 27, 2006:
Haha your description of the photo is awesome

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue June 13, 2006:
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!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon June 5, 2006:
Nice angle!!

A visitor from Portugal posted Sat June 3, 2006:
Very good

A visitor from Belgium posted Mon May 22, 2006:
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.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun April 23, 2006:
The Maho beach. I like this island and this beach very much and I gonna take vacation to this island soon.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue April 4, 2006:
Great pic

A visitor from Singapore posted Fri March 31, 2006:
What a place, what a site, what a landing, what an airline, what an aircraft. magnifique

A visitor from - posted Mon March 27, 2006:
Hi, I like on plane the picture because easy people like this picture and love this becuase they are from france fly toc east Islands in the pacific lol

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 22, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 4, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 17, 2006:
The A-340 combined with the low landeing in tropical St. Maarten makes for a perfect shot

A visitor from Portugal posted Mon February 13, 2006:
French !!!!

A visitor from Canada posted Sat February 11, 2006:
The best I seen of ST Maarten

A visitor from United States posted Fri February 10, 2006:
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!

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed February 1, 2006:
An excellent shot, I really like pictures when a heavy is just feet off the ground it reminds one of how big they actually are!!!

A visitor from Sweden posted Mon January 30, 2006:
Beautiful shot, wish I was there.

A visitor from Thailand posted Sun January 22, 2006:
This is my favorite airport, whish to be there once in my life! thanks.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri January 20, 2006:
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 =) =)

A visitor from Italy posted Fri January 20, 2006:
Ke figata ma secondo me è 1 montaggio!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri January 20, 2006:
So awesome to see it go down for landing just above the people on the beach....

A visitor from Dominican Republic posted Thu January 19, 2006:

A visitor from Mexico posted Sat October 29, 2005:
The photo is just great! You have nothing to do but just stare at this image & immediately transport to that Caribbean paradise called St Maarteen

A visitor from Israel posted Fri August 26, 2005:

Great Photo.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 25, 2004:
This has to be any pilots or aviation lovers paradice.Good unusual angle for this beach."HEAVEN"

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu November 25, 2004:
I understand why people travel all the way from Copenhagen to St Maarten ;)

A visitor from Norway posted Thu November 25, 2004:
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...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Nice angle. I'm lovin the people laid out on the beach!

A visitor from Israel posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Good angle of shot that shows either the beach as well as the runway.

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Very good shot!!! Congratulations!!!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu November 25, 2004:

Fantastic...a Wonderful spot to take some great pics, and some beers for only 1 dollar...it is amazing... Oh by the way fantastic shot

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Unique angle on a tried-and-true location.

A visitor from Spain posted Thu November 25, 2004:
BTW: is Saba the island that you can see far away, in the right side? a very clear day, isn't it?

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Nice SHOTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Sharp, colourful, its an A340 !

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 25, 2004:
This view never seems to get old. something engaging about the juxtapostion of airplane, beach, ocean and tourists. rdeb.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Overexposed! but nice place to catch the plane!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Nice, but overexposed.

A visitor from Australia posted Thu November 25, 2004:
Good photo quality, and a great veiw

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 25, 2004:
The angle and location

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 25, 2004:
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.

Great Photo, Wish I was there!
