recently I've seen some movies about this kind of landings, very close to the beaches, buildings, sea or mountains. It has to be quite a sensation when a big plane like this one flies upon you.

Hello KAri ,
We 've seen this scene many times . But allways a pleasure to see it . It must be very impressive for the people on the beach . But it must be difficult , too , to not take the shot :)

Amazing that it is allowed to use this area so close to the landing strip... This is indeed a necessary capture for anyone to be lucky enough to visit this paradise.

LATW they said, I wasn't even aware such an Air Caraibes exists... Another good addition to the St Martin landing series, I wonder how people can stand the noise...
Have a nice day JY

I have also seen this view before and am always impressed by it. You got a great capture of the plane coming in, and as a bonus the blue color on the tail compliments the blue on the umbrellas nicely. :-) It must be so exciting and also scary to be that close to a landing jet!

This Airbus is flying so low that we can imagine a crash two second after ! It's really impressive with the crowd of tourist spending good time on the beach.

This is also interesting and well done, but it is more usual in this location. I prefer your first one.

Again, a great, great moment with the flight and the people in the beach. A great contrast!

Wow!!! Excellent shot! Great capture!
Perfect sharpness, beautiful color tones.

Hi Kari. Such a special motive must be photographed. The whole thing looks like a risky maneuver. For the people on the beach, it seems quite normal. Anyway, a really great and worth seeing photo. Regards, Wolfgang.
