Beautiful photo!

It's amazing how the aqua color of the ocean is reflected on the underside of the aircraft. Fantastic photo!

I have been there. The bar, the beach AND the fence. Watched a 737 take off. I KNOW why they have stopped allowing beach goers to run up to the fence. When the pilot "floors it" the thrust literally blows you back and fast. I had to hold on to dear life to the fence and I was flying horizontally. Lost my cap, sun glasses and almost my clothes. The runway is short and steep mountains are at THE END OF THE RUNWAY. I was scared stiff. Those idiots on the beach thought it was a blast. Until someone got killed. Shame a hurricane destroyed the bar and restaurant. There was a large mural on a wall with a DC-3 on it. Gone now. Got a photo with me standing in front of it.

Wasn't there once some sort of 'competition' to see who could hold onto the fence the longest? Absolute insanity and more so when it was one of the heavies.

I did not know that, but I'm sure "a contest" was going on. Probably free drinks at the bar for the winner. Now the local police block the road traffic when planes take off(between the beach and the fence) and prohibit people on the beach rushing to the fence after the death occurred.

George...sanity prevails. Free drinks at the bar for the winner who could still stand up but with no hands:)
