This is the first time I've seen the famous island from the air and its different than I imagined it. I thought it was bigger!Your photo really captures the panorama of the whole island along with that wonderful beach.

Cool. Now I truly understand the low approaches to SXM.

SXM has become legendary. This shot makes it easier to explain the other (extremely) low shots at the fence. Hard for people to grasp without a picture like this.

Nice picture of the island !! 2180m is too short for a runway that support so many 747 !!!

In my eyes, it is a great photo because it gives the viewer quite a "birds eye" view detail of the area...the hotels, the famous Moho beach, the airport, the golf course, the different color tones on the ocean courtesy of the sun. i rate it a 10! it makes me feel as if i am the one in the

What a great light in this shot. Shows perfectly that SXM can be peaceful and quiet too, quite a contrast to all these under belly shots. GREAT!

To our Greek colleague, I can say it is luckily nothing like Dubai's "Palm Tree", this is much more real.

Lovely overview though and hope to fly there once.
