From Maho Beach Resort
The runway is just over the beach next to the resort
An American Airlines Boeing 767 takes off
People stand behind the engines to experience the blast. It is quite hot.
As seen from the previous pictures, not many people care..
The resort at sunset.
Near Pic Paradis view point in the hills in the middle of the island.
View from the hotel balcony at night.
Capital of the French Side of Marigot
Orient beach from the hills
Philipsburg the capital of Dutch side
Philipsburg center. This is Front Street. The other street in the capital is called Back street.
The Courthouse on Front Street
Back to the hotel
A view of a cruise ship from the hotel
You can see Saba island in the background. I believe no one lives there.
Landing jet. They said Bill Gates owns a place on the island. Maybe him :)
Lightning over the Bliss night club
The light trail is of a plane landing.
The resort again.
This guy was coming in when a small plane had just landed and I really did not know if the plane had cleared the runway.
Aborted landing....you can see the jets at full thrust.
Round two for landing
No problems here.
Give a good perspective how close the runway is. Now imagine the weekly KLM 747
The city of Grand Case on the French side. Best known for it's food.
Back to Philipsburg
Last day on Orient Beach
Another cruise ship from the hotel.
