Were you there on Saturday around 3? I flew in on American 867 from CLT. I believe it was N704US.

Amazing pictures, Will! Hope you enjoyed your time in St. Maarten. I would love to visit someday.

and yes, I do remember seeing your flight on FR24 as I was tracking all of the diversions yesterday to Boston (DAL328 if I recall correctly). Crazy day for you, I bet! :)

What is the best time of year to go? I wanna go but not when the beach is overloaded with people

Best Times (With LOTS OF PEOPLE) But alot more aircraft: February Break for North-East America, Christmas Break, or Easter Break.

With less people / less aircraft: early Autumn and end of Summer

Some really great photos, shame the 747 doesn’t fly to Sint Maarten anymore :(

Beautiful pictures, specially the CM E-190! They started with the Embraer when they inaugurated the PTY-SXM route in 2010, but later they switched to the 737 because the traffic begun to grow.

Sadly the E-190 will be retired gradually as the 737 MAX integrates the fleet.

It was insane!


I was in the first seat of the plane so I heard everything. A woman had a panic attack so I gave her a seat, so the pilots let me sit with them. I talked to them before the flight so they already knew me. It was great!

Awesome pictures as always Will! It’s cool how you saw AR too lol. The more and more I see the 75/767 cockpits, the more I like them! :)

Wow. That must’ve been a fun time.

What a great way to end a vacation although being in an unforeseen situation. :)

Hope you enjoyed your (short) time at Logan.

That would’ve been a trip of a lifetime! Carribean Airlines with no tailmarkings?

Wow! You saw quite alot it seems. Unfortunatly on my first trip to Sint Maarten, I did not get to see Maho Beach. However the second time I came with my family and I was able to drag them there. Funny enough there opinion of “getting killed by an airplane coming at you” and “you can drive up to KORD some day to see the planes” changed when a KLM Boeing 747-400 came in low. That was probably the highlight of my trip, though a Amerijet 727 or Shorts 330 would have been better (imo). I do have pictures however I’d have to transfer them and blah blah blah, so I’ll post em later. The Amerijet 727 was scheduled to come in when I was there however it made a stop in the Bahamas on July 10th for unknown reasons. I Would go again if I had the chance and rent a vacation house on Maho Beach, because it was pretty awesome.
