Remark Photographer
F-GLZO (cn 246) What more do you need? Sun, sand, surf, a good drink and lots of friends to share the sights with. A view of the crowd that gathers at the Sunset Beach Bar for the arrival of the day's heavies.

The photo really shows the perspective. BTW, that AF A343 is too high ;)It would be more exciting if it were lower.:-D

A visitor from Canada posted Fri January 13, 2006:
I have been there. I was at the beach an a 747 flew over. It almost sent me back to the sea. Then I received the jet from the turbines and we had light burns from the sand and heat. There are warning signs, but is all.

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 27, 2005:
Wow, I wish I was there to witness, Very stunning and beautiful.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 27, 2005:
How many photos are there that are almost identical to this one? Actually this is a really good photo. You can see the rest of the beach and the whole area around it, although it does make the aircraft look a bit small, especially for an A340!

A visitor from Ireland posted Sun November 27, 2005:
The technology required to achieve this apparantly,effortless and spectacular approach not withstanding all behind the scenes efforts from all involved.

A visitor from Indonesia posted Sun November 27, 2005:
The airplane is got to be less than 50ft from the ground in which that is a non normal landing procedure. The low height makes it look like it's gonna land short of the runway. Look at all those people, can you imagine an airplane with an extremely loud jet engine noise flying so close to the people and no one bother to cover up their ears and the only reason is because they're just too amazed and cant't believed what they're seeing.

A visitor from Lebanon posted Sun November 27, 2005:
This is an incredible Picture! I love the way the A340 deploys its beautiful landing gears, they just do what they were supposed to do. Very good angle. This shot is just Great!

A visitor from China posted Sun November 27, 2005:
Dream life!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 27, 2005:
You've captured the mood perfectly there Art. Having been there myself I know that mood!!

GREAT shot!

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 27, 2005:
Finally someone got the whole picture, thanks!! I was wondering what the rest of the beach looked like.. Thanks...
