Sand, sea, sun and airplanes...perfect vacation spot

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 30, 2011:
Nice Picture! Sadly this aircraft has suffered major damage in a runway overrun accident on 30 July, 2011 in Guyana.

A visitor from - posted Tue December 28, 2010:
5 stars for getting our SXM attention back where it belongs - on an airplane and not on the tourists!

A visitor from - posted Mon October 18, 2010:
That's why offering hearing-aids at Sunset Bar might be profitable. Technically, it's all been said before - extremely low way of takin'-off considering the length of the runway. Brilliant capture!

A visitor from - posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Great picture, stupid pilot. He was obviously showing off. Even with one engine out at V1 it's supposed to get 35 ft at the opposite threshold and for what I see, he was below that when he passed it. I flew the type and with both engines running you should be way above that.

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 12, 2010:
Most likely very high density altitude hot humid and if there was said to be a tailwind this is about as bad as it gets. however if the wind was calm it would make more sense to take-off toward the sea rather than toward the slopes. you cant also forget the possibility of a minor microburst:)

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 11, 2010:
Ahhhh memories

A visitor from - posted Thu July 15, 2010:
Its not because I'm from Trinidad, but I highly doubt any airline pilot will "showboat" with their fully laden airliner.... definitely not my first thought (And I wouldn't dare to second-guess the skippers decision) Judging by the time of day, this is most likely "Caribbean 416" to KIN/MKJP. A RW28 departure (most likely as a result of calm winds)straight out makes a lot of sense where they'll pick up the B520 to their first waypoint.... or maybe even DIRECT ANTEX. Flaps 5 is standard company procedure for Caribbean airlines, and this is probably a result of "Precise Calculation" and a very high Assumed temperature (This takeoff is an airline accountant's wet dream)...besides the 737-800 is no performance miracle off the deck anyway.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 14, 2010:
Haha and somehow they manage to get 744s out of SXM...

A visitor from Japan posted Wed July 14, 2010:
Very beautiful view!

A visitor from Trinidad And Tobago posted Mon July 12, 2010:
Good show, BW! Hummingbird, flutter those wings. ;)

A visitor from - posted Sat July 10, 2010:
Great Shot!!!...never seen such a low departure out of runway 28...amazing!!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri July 9, 2010:
Caribbean Airlines shows how it's done!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 8, 2010:
A difficult shot to capture well. You captured it very well! I've photographed the DL B-737-700 taking off on Rwy 28 at SXM. The -700 has better performance than the heavier -800 but they are not going quite as far to POS versus ATL. Pilot error, probably not. Showboating maybe. Also consider that the tailwind component on a Rwy 28 departure will lengthen the take off roll. Great picture!

A visitor from United States posted Thu July 8, 2010:

A visitor from Trinidad And Tobago posted Thu July 8, 2010:
Caribbean Airlines!! the best flights to POS

A visitor from South Africa posted Thu July 8, 2010:
I think he is landing backwards

A visitor from Australia posted Thu July 8, 2010:
Great photo obviously, but imagine an engine failure at V1!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Whoa! That's just way too intense! Too late on rotation, way too late. That would be so LOUD. Looks like he's using flaps 5... V-speed miscalculation...?

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
I'm must be there some day. Great shot mate!

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Very rare that this aircraft needs this much of an airstrip. great shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 7, 2010:
"What a capture! But this is, as others stated, probably pilot error.....:" Or maby he did it on purpose ;)

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Great picture!! What a beach eh?

A visitor from Mauritius posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Just Great

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Nie picture, but I doubt pilot error. He's doing it on purpose!

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Photo great, captain....NOT. I fly this model airplane - doesn't really matter - but I will tell you that we all think this kind of thing is cool until that fence gets clipped by the main gear and flies onto the beach killing a couple tourists. All for the sake of showboating. Ego gets pilots in trouble. No room for it in this business.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Nice shot, but those pilots were really cutting it too close there. I dont want to say they were being careless, but...they really shouldn't be pulling stunts like that

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Amazing, If this was a reported incident then yes pilot error but if not it was the pilot entertaining the crowd!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 7, 2010:
What a capture! But this is, as others stated, probably pilot error. A 738 could have easily been at over 200 AGL if not more with that runway length.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Wonderfull, this is just sick. Such a low pass must be thrilling to see and so painfull to hear.

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 7, 2010:
I think he rotated really late...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Unbeleveable! During takeoff!? Wow!

A visitor from Jordan posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Wow man, very nice, this is the first picture I see for a take off from this side of the runway, we always see landings. great shot!!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed July 7, 2010:
An amazing photo! Very unusual, but interesting and awesome!

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Dramatic.. This is definitely pilot error. Either to low thrust setting or to little flaps.. nice catch nontheless!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed July 7, 2010:
That's just so sick.. If I were there a month earlier I'd be right under it! I've seen A330's A320's and 737's depart over the beach, but never so low! Awesome. I know how hard it is to capture this the right way!! Congrats.

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:
Very unusual picture from SXM using this QFU! Too bas it was not a 747, jet blast would for sure kick this people away!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue July 6, 2010:
