Saturday, the busiest day, but the more crowded too as some cruise ships arrive. Everyone enjoying the beach.
Coming a little high over Maho Beach.
Very nice view of Princess Juliana at sunset from the hill. Recommend everyone in the island to go up in the little roads there, fabulous sunset view. [D5200 + 16-85 / f7,1 / 5s]
Probably one of the lowest approaches of every time in SXM by this Embraer. Great skills on the cockpit, other way I could have seen a massive decapitation on the beach.
Arriving at the paradise, where I would spent the next 8 days.
Leaving the paradise after 8 days of many beers at Sunset Bar, new friends of spotting and of course, thousands of photos.
Even being famous about some low landings at SXM, this was the lowest approach of Insel Air of the week. Not bad.
Beautiful sunset at Maho Beach while JetBlue was about seconds to land.
Nice product of Copa Airlines, PTV and Sky Interior together make the flight much better than the others with older Copa aircrafts. Photo taken at ground after a 8h flight from Porto Alegre. Next ... (more)
St. Maarten atmosphere. Aircraft passing very low, the danger warnings and everyone being an aviation enthusiast for one day.
Even for the smalls twin otters there is some enthusiasm at Maho Beach for non aviation lovers.
