Spotting SXM | MAY 2019

Welcome to my second spotting topic on IFC!

In Early May, I visited the island of Sint Maarten (SXM/TNCM) for my birthday! Usually my family travel down to SXM every February but as a present, my Grandfather flew with me down to experience the Best Birthday that I have ever had!

Camera: Canon EOS Rebel T6
Lenses: Canon EF 18-55mm & Canon EF 75-300mm

Let’s Begin!

1.) First up we have a Air Antilles ATR 42-600 (F-OIXO) from Curacao.

2.) Here’s a United Boeing 737-700 (N14704) from Newark.

3.) Nothings better than watching a Joon’s Airbus 340-300 (F-GLZO -Operating for Air France) land at SXM (Except for the B747)! This bird is flying in from Paris.

4.) Here is a ERJ-145 (N261BC) corporate charter with IBC Air on behalf of Nations Fund LLC. This flight was coming from Kingston, Jamaica.

5.) SXM is home to many small charter airlines… Like this one here; SXM Airways. This BN-2B-20 Islander (PJ-SXM) is coming in from Saint Barthélemy.

6.) Following that we have a Cessna 402B (VP-AAK) landing from Anguilla with Caribe Air Charters!

7.) Everyone loves a good ole Pilatus PC-12 (F-OSBE)! This one was flying in from San Juan

8.) Whats better then the Pilatus? A King Air 100 (VP-LNB) operated by VI Air Link! This aircraft is landing from the Virgin Islands.

9.) Air Century is a new carrier to SXM operating to and from the Dominican Republic. Isn’t this Bombardier CRJ-200ER (HI1034) beautiful?!

10.) Ending it off with the classic Air Caraibes Airbus 330-200 (F-OFDF) coming in from Paris-Orly

Excellent photos, as always!
I visited St. Maarten once, but I wasn’t as interested in aviation at the time, so I didn’t take any pictures. Hopefully I’ll be able to visit again sometime, except with my camera. 🙂
