I'm asked quite often if the photos of airplanes flying low over the beach in St. Maarten, (SXM), are "photo shopped" or fake. Folks, they are REAL shots. I believe that SXM is one of the few airports in the world where photos like the one I've attached, can be taken. It's a thrill to have a 600,000 pound airplane fly only 20 feet above your head! Is it loud? No, not really, since most of the engines are at idle thrust. It does make eerie wispy sounds as the vortices descend to the ground around you though. If you're looking for an awesome airplane "adventure", I highly recommend SXM. You'll LOVE IT!!!
