Can it really get much lower than that for SXM?

I had similar encounter with an AF340 once. Maybe slightly higher though. Those RWY27 departures are just incredible, I wish all departures were coming this way.

I have been on the other side of the runway there (Planes usually don't depart over the beach) where I was convinced the nose gear was going to clip the top of our car.

Why couldn't they do that when I was there ;-)

A Continental 737 and my very flight B6-788 departed RWY 28 while I was there... nothing else :-(
