How to qualify for the Darwin Awards step 1! This is most likely the most dangerous photo I have ever taken. The aircraft rushed over my head at no more (but probably less than) 2m/6ft! St. Barths is usually pictured as paradise, but it can be quite dangerous! Recently a person was hit in the head by an aircraft walking at the beach at the other end of this very runway.

Awesome photo. My wife loves St. Barths and I love the Cessna Caravan as a pilot.

I didn't know that someone got hit in the head with an incoming plane at this airport. Needless to say, Jurgen, you're very lucky at catching this photo without getting hit in the head. You sure were in a dangerous position, but it's a nice and rare photo, nonetheless.

That was a good photo, but you could have been seriously hurt if not killed.

Really impressive. Looks like pure adrenaline for you and the pilot too. Everything went fine so no need for discussion.

Well, if this photo wound up here it probably means this Cessna was not equipped with the optional tailhook!
