Well done! This is a view of the famous Maho Beach approach that we don't often get here on Airliners.net, which it makes it all the more enjoyable!

Agree with previous poster from USA. Eventually someone has come up with a new angle to photo from at SXM. A very refreshing change, and a great shot too. Well done.

It's soooooo cool to see this from the water! I hope there will be more like this in the future. I love seeing the shots from SXM, but they are always on the beach. More from the water!!

Awesome new angle for this photo opportunity. It must have been difficult to keep the camera steady out on a boat.

Pretty scary! This B-747 flew so low that anyone could touch the landing gear. However, the picture is perfect and taken at the right time.

About 10 meters lower and those people could have been able to touch the underbelly of the aircraft!

This photo makes a refreshing change, so many shots are just side on views, this ads a new perspective to the approach.

Great angle for this shot. Most photos at SXM are on the beach perpendicular to the plane's flight path. Great idea to get out in the water for a different perspective.

Most Maho airplane pictures taken from the side. The only one I've seen from out in the bay and perfectly timed and composed.

Great picture and love reading the comments too.

Would indeed be a completely different picture if the Air France was no back there, it would be just the KLM :). 50% difference, 2 airlines, 1 airline.

Guess I would be feeling pretty short with my 6.3, as those people on St. Maarten can tough the gear during this pretty scary situation. You crack me up dude :).

The photo shot taken from the water to the beach area shows just how low and the size of the 747 is. Great shot.
