You have to be in Sint Maarten to see how unbelievably close to the ground these jets really are. I've been there and it is such a fantastic albeit scary sight.

Great picture

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 21, 2006:
The plane and shadow over the blue water and sandy beech seem like a landing into a barely inhabited island--maybe on top of the man and little boy!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu July 27, 2006:
Just the colour, perspective, shadow... it just all comes together to make anotherwise OK shot excellent!

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 2, 2005:
It's an amazing shot because I've worked on 747's when i worked at pan am and my career in the aviation industry.even know when i'm working at the airport. i still love watching 747's and other airplanes takeoff and land just like i did when i was a kid when i go to work with my dad when he worked at pan am.yes the 747 is still my favorite.concorde is second,and 777 third to watch takeoff and land.
