    YUP, that's the place, i think it's just crazy that people, and the road for that matter are that close to the landing zone, you'd think the turbulence would be crazy right down near the fence there. :crazy:

    I think thats the place I saw pictures where cars were blown off the street by airplanes. Never was sure if that was real, but makes me think it was now.

    you had to have heard some go over DAVE. :D they try to change the flight pattern but what can they do when the runways are sorta kinda already there.wayne county actually owns the airport and they will give us new windows,roof, wall insulation, doors,furnace/central air,siding for free.i'm not to sure about the quality of the material though.lowest bidder and all.maybe i can get them to install my stuff. :laugh:

    That would be Princess Juliana Airport (SXM), in St. Maarten.
    Maho Beach (where the pics are taken from) is world-famous among aviation buffs as the place to go to get close-up pics of airliners in flight. The Sunset Beach Bar even has a chalkboard with flight numbers and arrival times so the shutterbugs know when to look (there's a picture of it on the first pics page). Can't wait to go there sometime...

    Click HERE to see more from SXM.

    Flight Level 350 has some video from SXM, and other places too. Cool stuff...

    I know it's a cool place to set up and take pics but a sucky one to set up for sunning; don't you think?

    During the final phase of approach and the flare, the engines are pretty much at idle or cutoff. You won't get more than a breeze beyond 100 feet from the engine.

    Looks like a cool place to take pics and watch the planes, but i agree that it would suck if you were just trying to get some sun or relax.
