A great example of why some planes should be equipped with loud air horns, like those on big trucks. There are places in the world where people will just NOT get out of the way. I know of one such incident that cost four lives, all of them on the plane (pilot rotated too early because some people were in the way).

Duck!

A visitor from Spain posted Fri June 5, 2009:
Awesome photo!

A visitor from Singapore posted Sat February 14, 2009:
The pilot must be shouting to him : Get lost from my path!

A visitor from Philippines posted Mon December 22, 2008:
I think the guy on blue says: "oh sh*t!"

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue November 25, 2008:
A very unique airport. Only for experts.
When I've been there, an Otter Twin almost hit my car's roof (for 1 meter).

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 4, 2008:
The skidmarks on the runway are in all odd directions.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat May 3, 2008:
Great photo
TFFJ it's simply wonderful!

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue November 27, 2007:
This place likes the SDU airport

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri August 17, 2007:
This is an amazing airport with some amazing approaches.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed May 30, 2007:
Simply great!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Wed March 7, 2007:
Is the pilot turning away from the runway?
The guy on the beach could be the plane's new target.

A visitor from Saudi Arabia posted Mon January 29, 2007:
What a moment!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 12, 2007:
Nice pic! I love how the guy ducks to avoid the plane.

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 17, 2006:
Wow!

A visitor from India posted Sun October 1, 2006:

Seen this beach and aircraft approaching runway many times. This shot is a bit different. Well done

A visitor from Sri Lanka posted Sat September 2, 2006:
Great shot! taken at the right time. like to hear what that guy who's walking on the beach thought of the pilot

A visitor from Turkey posted Fri July 21, 2006:
No need to run and hide it is wonderful

A visitor from France posted Sat July 15, 2006:
I did practice St Barth rwy 10 n' rwy 28, there's a big red sign on the beach telling tourists to stay well clear, but runway 10 is almost always in use...so when it's 28 (rarely)...tourists never think of looking the opposite way for once...and when you're short final 28: there's no way to execute a go around !!!

A visitor from China posted Sun June 25, 2006:
You chicken.
The pilot seems to have no idea what he is about to hit.

A visitor from Argentina posted Mon June 12, 2006:
Is very dangerous,but at the same time espectacular!!!

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 1, 2006:
Its just an insane moment

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed May 31, 2006:
It seems as a difficult approach...or the pilot is over instruction.

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 31, 2006:
A great action shot caught at the right instant, showing the danger of runway incursions. I hope the comment blaming the pilot for flying low was tongue-in-cheek. These thoughtless trespassers endangered themselves and the occupants of the aircraft. Evidently fencing is needed.

A visitor from United States posted Wed May 31, 2006:
Sharp picture of an aircraft in an unusual situation

A visitor from Austria posted Tue May 30, 2006:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue May 30, 2006:
Looks like the pilot was actually aiming for him !! j/k great pic

A visitor from Germany posted Tue May 30, 2006:
Years ago I made similar experiences when flying a BN-2 into Helgoland in the North Sea, coming over a populated beach which was covered with warning signs which in turn were mostly disregarded

A visitor from Malaysia posted Tue May 30, 2006:
I wonder... what will happen when longshore drift will wash what amount of sand is left before the runway... Well caught! Especially the propellors.
