Remark Photographer
PH-BFA / FA-001 (cn 23999/725) How low can you get! Simply amazing and breathtaking to watch. It's all over in a second but the photograph and memory's will last for ever. SXM is simply the most amazing place I have visited, I would recommend it to all. Special thanks to Derek P for his help [Canon EOS 20D]

It's "doo-doo in your pants" as a 747 jumbo jet passes extremely low over a beach full of beach-goers. Wow, this is a spectacular shot.

The best ever I seen

A visitor from - posted Thu January 1, 2009:
People are very close to the aircraft in landing way as I can imagine , generally speaking this is not possible because of the very hard noise and danger.

Simply great picture! scary though to think, your sitting on a beach resting trying to get away from all the noise and pesky things like that and then all the sudden, a boeing 747 flies 20 ft above your face. not the place i want to be.

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 6, 2006:
Excellent view! good close up!

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 27, 2006:
The photo is vivid and captured all the texture of the plane. The sheer closeness of the plane gives this photo a unique feel and touch.

Absoloutley breathtaking! To see this aircraft so close in flight is unforgettable!

A visitor from United States posted Mon March 6, 2006:
Whis is one of the most spectaular photos i have ever seen. what gets me is that the people are just standing there and it makes me laugh because it looks like the tires are going to smash their faces in. i am also amazed at how big the plane is in this photo; if i was there i would be scared out of my life.

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 4, 2006:
