Caribbean cruise - day 7

Philipsburg, Saint Maarten. Walked around town at the bay, and near the beach. Took a taxi to Maho Beach, at the west end of the Saint Maarten's Princess Juliana International Airport. This beach is where people (hundreds today, and as many as a thousand) gather to take photos and video of jumbo jets landing at the airport. It's quite a tourist attraction. We arrived just in time to see a KLM Boeing 747 land right over our heads. The photos will show you how close the plane was. The third photo, showing the bottom of the plane, was taken with a wide-angle lens (not a telephoto). Most people were off to the side; we were in the center of the flight path.   :-)
