Thread: March in SXM

    March in SXM

    I had the pleasure of spending the month of March in SXM, a respite from a long and harsh Toronto winter. I shot over 150 Gigs of images and am just beginning to process them. I thought I might share some from time to time

    1/ ArkeFly 767 over Maho Bay bringing 80 sailors for the Heineken Regatta. The flight would continue on to Curacao

    2/ Jetblue A320 departing Rwy 28 for JFK operating flight 788

    What a great set of photos from one of my favorite airports, you did an excellent job of catching the action and I was impressed with the number of Runway 28 departures you got. Judging from the large number of photos from that location I presume you stayed at the La Terrasse? Somewhere I really want to stay on my next SXM trip.

    Cheers

    Thank you all for the nice comments - I did stay at La Tarrasse - we rent a condo on the third floor - it is excellent for views of the approach

    Cheers

    Fantastic shots Trevor! Not your typical SXM coverage. Love that UA 73. Hope you make it down to JFK again one of these days.

    Thanks Don,

    I am hoping to make it down to JFK, maybe 2 times this year, early August and then for UNGA, all subject to change. Looking forward to hooking up with you guys

    Cheers
