Saint Juliana airport in St. Maarten. The capture of the airplane is awesome in itself, but the people too is priceless !
Fidel Mendez
St Maarten incredible landings.Nice shot.
Robert Ferrell
That's one glide slope you better hit every time.
Jeffrey Bryner
Best TNCM composition I've seen yet. Love the different reactions of the people in the photo. Bravo.
Kurt Anderson
That photo should get a 5.0 hands down.

On second thought, I'd pick a better place to play on the beach.

Love the girl in the pink top (on the right) taking a pic after the -47s already by her!
This one is great.
I think the girl in the pic is taking a selfie?

I've seen many shots of people on that stretch of beach welcoming a landing aircraft, but that is the best shot I've seen yet of the St. Maarten Welcoming Team.<br />I've got to make this one of my desktop wallpapers.<br />Wonderful composition. Superb indeed!
Thomas Wenzlaff

Julian LaBelle

Ditto other comments about the people---priceless! You should enter it in general photo contests because of them.

Very cool. Does anyone else see that the expressions on the people look very similar to a Norman Rockwell painting?

it,s the arrival of Kl 785 from amsterdam.<br />this spectacle you can enjoy 3 times a week on tuesday,thursday and sunday about 10.30 AM.local.(in european wintertime +1)<br />2 hours later it goes to curacao so then you have at this place a gygantic jet blast with heavy sandstorm on the Maho beach.<br />Awesome for plane spotters and you don,t need a raincoat!!.

I landed here in August of 2005 in my C172, N9690H. Didn't get this reaction I'm sure. No photos either!
Nuno Dias
so cool
Don Watkins
I hate to have to explain the girl on the right in the pink top taking the a photo, but one second earlier the plane was in front of her, she took her picture then and is looking at it now
Joe Wood
The girl in the white bikini on her knees with her back to the camera. Is there a shot somewhere where she is standing and facing the camera? NICE! Oh and cool plane...
Great experience ! Very cool photo.
Look at all the people ducking!
Donald Macomber
