Two US Airways Aircraft flew into and out of St. Marrten that day March the 18th.

Registration #'s of n606au and n600au both according to Airliners.net database are 757's.

757 no doubt.

The winglets are not right and the main gear has four wheels whereas the A321 has just two.

I was wondering that myself, great picture by the way!

At first I thought it was an A321 because it looks like it has winglets and the engines are rather small. But if you look at the landing gear, it has 2 sets of wheels, which would normally mean a 757 since the A321 only has a single set. However, I know that Indian Airlines has at least one A320 with a double boggie set up, so the question is are there any A321's with that set up? If yes then I'd say it's an A321, if not, then a 757.

One thing I noticed is that if the was a US A321, the engines would be 2 piece, whereas the ones in the picture are one piece.

US A321, 2-piece engine:

Sweet shot Eric. We have had a number of corrections submitted for this photo. "Its and A321 look at the fences" I did a little looking around because this aircraft does "appear" to have fences, but if you look at the other photos of this a/c it has what looks like an extended light on the wingtip which gives the appearance of a fence. Not sure if it is common to just this 757, or maybe to early 757's(this one is number 3). So don't let anyone say anything different...757 all they way.

Eric,

Get used to getting emails from people who try to erroneously correct, complain and say some strange things about your photos. Ignore it. Give thanks to those who compliment your work, but pay no attention to the other emails.

Great shot.
