Didn't this already happen? Netherlands Antilles looks familiar ... ahh, yes!

The same place, too -- it looks like it, at least. Beach. Low plane. No nude people, though.

Salutations to the photographer for catching this great shot!

Anybody remember the wingtip vortices scenes from the movie "Pushing Tin"? Hope they didn't ruin their day at the beach.

Hey dude from Australia, YOU'RE RIGHT!
Finally someone notices it. Thank you! It is really a bit lower than the AF744.
Great plane, great weather and great pic!

Obviously, the St Maartin facility is uniquely placed on the terrain. Would like to get a view of this airport/sunway system from a 1000 feet a mile away. Scary place!

It must be really noisy for anyone on that beach. No need for sunblock by seeking the shade from the plane.

This photo emphasizes the immense size of the 747 at low, low altitude, low enough to scare the people on the beach.

I wonder how many of the beach-goers have hearing damage from hanging around too long when the whales are flying past!

This has to be a candidate for lowest jet approach at SXM ever, and definitely lowest heavy approach.

Great Picture! I'm going to this island in about a month, but it's really a shame because no planes (yet) are going to be landing. Hopefully I'll get the opportunity again sometime!
