Well guys, sadly it’s over. My trip of a lifetime has been over (since midnight as a result of out 5 hour diversion to Boston from JFK). The trip to SXM is one I will never forget. An AvGeeks dream.
Please note: Quality of the photos was dropped because of exporting. I didn’t take the time to get them to my PC.
