An incredible takeoff from Princess Juliana International. A steep climb angle along with sharp right turn makes this departure exhilarating.

Were the pilots trying to avoid scaring the beach goers? Great shot!

I can almost hear the stall warning alarm from here! Great shot though. It pays to be in the right place at the right time with your camera.

The flight attendants will have a lot of clean up to do after this take off. And the pilots must be giggling about passenger reactions!

Actually, it was a noise abatement climb - for the few passengers onboard, all VIPs. There was a rap concert going on down below.
