SXM- KLM 747 Beach Bar Arrival



Around the world with me - Maho Beach - Saint Maarten - The Caribbean *********************************************** KLM Boeing 747 approaching St Maarten Airport. Due to the unique proximity of low flying airliners, the location is very popular with plane spotters. This is one of the few places in the world where aircraft can be viewed in their flightpath just outside the end of the runway. Watching airliners pass over the beach is such a popular activity that daily arrivals and departures airline timetables are displayed on a board in most bars and restaurants on the beach, and the Sunset Bar and Grill has a speaker on its outside deck that broadcasts the radio transmissions between pilots and the airport's control tower. There is a danger of people standing on the beach being blown into the water because of the jet blast from aircraft taking off from runway 10. The local government warns that closely approaching and departing aircraft can "result in serious injury and/or death". An additional fence has been added recently behind runway 10, in order to prevent people from hanging onto the main fence surrounding the runway to experience being blasted by the jet flow. *********************************************** OMG OMG OMG!!!! My sincere thanks to @bestvacations for featuring my shot... I'm so happy, honored and flattered. You are the best!!!! by @cbezerraphotos
