    Cockpit shot during the cruise


    After around 3 hours of cruising we begun our descend to 3000ft and started preparing for the landing. After contacting St Maarten tower, we were informed that runway 09 is being used. Visibility was around 10 miles with strong winds. Lots of clouds in the sky made the descend really shake. We were also told that there is a tropical storm coming.



    Approaching SXM



    Over the fence



    You can feel the stormy atmosphere



    Not too many visitors on the beach due to bad weather



    Just a look at SXM's famouse buildings



    Almost there



    Touchdown



    Turning around



    Taxiing to the gate



    At the gate - view from the parking lot



    Parked



    Thanks for flying !


    The flight was to fly back the same day, an hour later, but because of the heavy storm that came, low visibility and extremely strong wind, the flight was cancelled and the airplane had to stay for the night. The flight flew back in the morning, on the next day. And I took some nice departure shots.

    People at Sunset do not really seem to care about that "small" 757 as the KLM 747 is about to arrive rewally soon



    Entering the active...09 again

        Mmmmmmm....very nice shots indeed. I've been pretty lazy about getting a good graphics card to go along with my FSX, so I'll have to do that sometime.

            SXM or 757? Flytampa is waiting for the service pack for the FSX release. There is only a preliminary one released with the FS9 version.

            How do you like the Capatain Sim model?

              Oh yeah I was thinking about the preliminary version lol my bad
              Captain Sim is pretty cool. I only have block B or w.e. it is so only the model and vc. No sounds, no panel. I like the vc, although it's the real FPS eatter. Also the animations are awesome. I think if you have good FPS its much better than PSS' one.
