I had a super fun day at Maho Beach with all the planes coming in

Things to watch out when spotting at SXM

  1. Dont stand behind the fence or on the wall when planes are landing or taking off. Today a pilot decided to be a bad word and come off the glide slope and get super low. He almost hit a guy and he hit the fence a little on purpose because he comes in there so much probaly laughing until some gets hit. No pic
  1. Theres a stage that’s probaly the best spot to take pictures at a Bar.
  1. Dont be stupid behind a 757

Yea, I was thinking about putting some edits into the pictures but it’s a full send type of thing.😂

I love that Island! I visit every year and always have a good time around the airport. Hoping that we see KLM B747 Seasonal and the return of TUI B788 and some other A330s in the near future.

I struggle to believe that, that’s a huge flight safety risk that a pilot would hit the fence “on purpose” for a joke.

My mom use to fly the 757 in their with Delta and they always would power up with almsot 90% with brakes on at the end of the runway and they would just see people start flying.

It was a small twin prop that you could clearly saw come off the glide slope as he was incredible low and he just about hit a bus,person, and it looked like he just tipped the fence. We all knew it was on purpose because he would never be that low
