Thanks!

You bet we did... when the planes would come in, it looked like they were coming directly at us. Very, very cool!

Nice capture of this scene. It's one of my bucket list places to visit.

What a crazy sight. I like how so many people on the beach are watching the plane.

I have a hard time convincing my mind that this is real. But there is no other way you could get every person on the beach to look up, and reflections on the underside of the plane match perfectly.

Now I want to see the picture you took two seconds later that shows everyone being blown into the water from the jet exhaust.

A great capture.

WOW Is that in South America? I watched a show about a runway that is super close to the people on the beach there.

that plane does seem awful low and close to the pple, I'm surprised no one is turned around watching it, it must be very loud

Makes your heart stop when you see it the first time.

What a cosy place ;-). If I hadn't seen similar pictures from this place before I guess I would consider this a photoshop job. Nice capture!

I've seen a lot of shots like this at airliners.net, but I wonder how many people here will think this is fake!!

Ahhh... St Maarten/St Martin. One of the islands I really wanted to visit, but didn't manage to get to. :(

A great image here... nice colours and great composition.
