Last ever passenger KLM 747 at Sint Maarten

This is what it looked like....the very last 747 landing at the short runway of SXM. It was amazing to be part of this farewell. I heared that there were almost 4800 people to say goodbye to the queen! She was the icon of the airport...she was :( To colour the beach, klm handed out some t-shirts and hoodies, thanks KLM! From now on they have a direct flight AMS-SXM with an Airbus A330.

Delta aids Carnival Dream

So the sad story is that the Carnival Dream cruise liner broke down here in St. Maarten, so the company decided to fly the passengers out after 2 days here on the island. The good news is that we got a lot of Delta heavies. This is the first time I have ever seen a Boeing 767-400 and so happy to have seen it home on my little island!
