Excelently framed classic shot maybe the most classic spot to photograph and airliner. The 747 in full landing configuration with KLM livery and the colour matching bikini girl also taking a shot really makes you want to be there one day.

I'm beginning to suspect that the subject of most photos at SXM is not what I thought it was. Great capture of a real beauty.

If you look closely, you will see a boeing 747 in the picture as well.

Great shot, but how can you use every inch of a 10mm lens?

The first thing I looked at was the girl. Otherwise I would be scared

This is probably the best "low landing" shot taken at SXM so far; unlike many, it shows the water on the left, the beach (with the "obligatory" bikini) in the middle, and the runway on the right. Not to mention, it has a 747 for the main subject, instead of some of the other "large types"......very well planned shot indeed! Way to go Cary !

The White Tail-Flash is one of the best in A.net! (The 747 could do with a bath...)

The supposed "747" in this photo must have a cloaking device because it's nowhere to be seen! I see the girl though. P.S. Sorry I see the plane now. Had to grab my glasses.
