Diving down to the airport! And somehow that cross in the background seems quite fitting.

Is this kind of approach common at SBH? Is that why there's a big Cross just there? :) Incredible luck getting this shot!

I love St. Bart's photos - this one captures the element of absurdity in the approach! Having never been to the island, is the cross to mark the site of a plane accident or something else?

Is that cross a memorial for the Air Caraibes Twin Otter that crashed in that spot on theat same approach back in 2001?

The pilot should be the great grand son of Charles Lindbergh. He is just trying to ask the SUV drivers: "Which way is Ireland?". (Ali Aminzadeh)

The cross marks the spot where planes usually crash...

If I were a regular pilot of this airport, I would go there to do a praying to bless my flight, mainly at landings.
