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.

Everytime i see this shot, i'm amazed at how little the space is between the plane and the water. i would jump at the chance to stand in that very spot...wow.

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!

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.
