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.

I can make out the 747 down below.

Nice, but needs near pictures

A visitor from Germany posted Mon April 2, 2007:
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!

I would love to go on this plane

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed July 26, 2006:
Excellent photo top class

A visitor from - posted Thu June 15, 2006:
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

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu May 25, 2006:
Nice picture of the island !! 2180m is too short for a runway that support so many 747 !!!

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sat May 13, 2006:
Finally great to see an aerial pic of SXM - showing Maho beach and other awesome views of this island.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu May 4, 2006:
Great shot of the famous runway.

A visitor from Greece posted Fri April 28, 2006:
Oye! It's like Dubai's ''Palm Tree''

A visitor from Canada posted Sun April 23, 2006:
Brings back many fond memories of one of my favorite places. captures a unique view of landscape only found in St. Maarten.Love it!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 17, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 17, 2006:
Cool. Now I truly understand the low approaches to SXM.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 16, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Sun April 16, 2006:
You captured St. Maarten at its best! Pure beauty, nice pic!

A visitor from - posted Sun April 16, 2006:
You captured the magic of this little island so well.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sat April 15, 2006:
Great overview of SXM. All can be seen. Love the light!

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 15, 2006:
The runway is actually long...i thought it was shorter ....but anyways superb shot!

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 15, 2006:
Complete airport picture. Thats great.

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 15, 2006:
Great view on the island itself and you can compare the size of the airport to the rest of it, great photo

A visitor from Trinidad And Tobago posted Sat April 15, 2006:
I gave this picture five stars because it makes St. Maarten look soo beautiful

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat April 15, 2006:
Lovely picture. I've got to go there one day for a holiday and to do some aeroplane spotting.
