Love it!! amazing shot

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 25, 2011:
Great photo. but be honest, there was no tail wind on that day. just look at the palms in the background. it's also the perspective that makes it look even lower. but still, great photo!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri April 22, 2011:
Very very low!or is it the angle that makes it that way.Well no danger for a bird strike this low haha.Must be awesome underneath the queen of the skies this way.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun January 16, 2011:
Great photo! But there was no tailwind that day :D
I can see myself under the 747!

A visitor from - posted Sat December 4, 2010:
Omg! I love low approach, but this one is too much low! anyway, awesome shot!

A visitor from United States posted Mon November 8, 2010:
WOW. Looks like you're about to be konked on the head by the wingtip! This makes all the other SXM arrivals look really high! But I fear some future flight will end in disaster for the folks on the beach, the cars on the road, and the passengers on board - this is not a limbo contest - the goal is a safe, if unimpressive, landing!

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sun October 31, 2010:
Very nice photo

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue October 12, 2010:
Wow!!! Thats a really low aproach!!__really wish i would be there

A visitor from - posted Mon October 11, 2010:
WOW!!!! I'm amazed it cleared the fence...

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 8, 2010:
Impressive .....

A visitor from - posted Sat July 10, 2010:
This has to be the lowest arrival of any wide body into sxm... i mean just wow!!! the first time i experienced this my heart was in my throat...not just because i love planes and being so close to one in flight and not inside one, but you get the feeling that its gonna drop on yur head...and the smell of the fuel as it passes overhead gives me a rush

A visitor from - posted Fri July 9, 2010:
People under the plane must have guts to remain there without move not even a single hair! Great shot.

A visitor from - posted Wed July 7, 2010:

Wow, just wonderful. A 747 this low... amazing

A visitor from United States posted Fri June 4, 2010:
The bikini clad girl is thrilled. Very very nice close up of 747 also. cheers!

A visitor from Poland posted Fri June 4, 2010:
Hey big blue boy, you just ruined my hairdoo!!!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 4, 2010:
These KLM pilots seem to compete in lowest approaches to St Maarten with 747`s

A visitor from - posted Fri June 4, 2010:
St. Maarten shots are the best. Five stars, Okke!

A visitor from - posted Thu June 3, 2010:

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 3, 2010:
Wow this is a great pic wish i could take one so nice

A visitor from Austria posted Thu June 3, 2010:
Amazing altitude! Cool captured!

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 3, 2010:
This is an amazing shot. It really goes to show how massive these machines really are.

A visitor from Finland posted Thu June 3, 2010:
Must be the lowest approach ever on TCNM...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 3, 2010:
Nice catch! I was also there on that day. And in fact, the wind was blowing 30-35km/h from the east - so no tailwind at all.

A visitor from - posted Thu June 3, 2010:
It's a perfect pic...

A visitor from Spain posted Thu June 3, 2010:
WOW! this queen of the skies looks huge. Nice capture. Congrats Okke!
