An Islander heads down the infamous approach into St barts where me, ChrisK, ChrisS, and RyanD spent a wonderful day shooting, drinking, and eating at possibly one of the best resturants in the world. Does it get much better than this? Oh and 10 points if you can spot a certain Mr Ryan Davis trying to get a artisitic shot!

Location and plane on landing approach composition. Ryan Davis in foreground takes the other star away - otherwise a five-pointer!

I absolutely love this photo!! My fiancee flies in and out of St. Barths all the time. He has described the approach to me a many times. I thought I had the full visual planted in my mind until I came across this picture, WOW!! What a beautiful photo!! It shows everything my fiancee described to me. The mountains, the beach, the villas, the tower. It's beautiful and exactly like he described. Maybe some day I'll be able to see it with my own eyes. Thanks for the perfect visual!!

I can land RWY-10 in FS2004 but only with a Colby/Firefly ultra-light plane!:)
Good job Valentine!

Beautiful shot.

For the 10 points, is this Mr. Ryan Davis the man right in front of you?
