its St. Maarten. Go back to thiat pic and hit the MORE choice. This is probably ground zero for aviation photography enthusiasts.. I think there is some warning nearby the beach about departing traffic' jet blasts.. but I dont remember where I learned that.
No kidding, I visited there about 5 years ago with my family, not knowing that Orient beach was a "clothing optional" beach and it turned out quite akward (gross old people?). Unfortunately, I wasn't into aviation yet, and I didn't get to visit the "cool" beach right before the airport. I can't wait to get back tho!
At LGA they route incoming planes that as they land are no more than 20 feet above the Grand Central Parkway, heck the lamp posts on the highway are a mere 8ft high for that reason!! I love sitting in traffic near that airport
Yep, believe it or not, it is real, one of the instructors here at Alteon is a retired American Airline Captain & used to fly that landing. I too thought it was fake & he told all about it, pretty wild.
