While I was waiting for my previous post to upload to my server I was sent a link from a colleague that had some wicked photos on it that I wanted to turn around and share with you.
SXM is one of my favourite places to fly to but not fly to. I know that does not make any sense. Basically, I hate how long the flight is, I get bored. But being down there, even if it is a short short time, is wicked.
I have been there a couple of times and both times I have been there I have seen KLM and Virgin Atlantic both flying in a 747.
Why is it so cool? Well check out the photo links below….
- The approach from inside the cockpit
- The approach from that little piece of beach at the end of the runway you saw from the cockpit
- Touch down on the runway, notice how close to the start of the runway and fence
OK and here I have a few photos I took when I was down there for my first time. Really wanted to see what the KLM 747 was going to do when it got to the end of the runway – other than take off of course, but if you noticed that there is a mountain at the other end of the runway – well this can pose a problem. If you follow me.
So as you can see the rate of climb was so high that the 747 cleared the mountain by a HUGE margin.
OK enough of being a geek.
