Maho Blast

Since I got the DD some people can't believe the jumbo jet landing is real. Here I try to show what people experience when the plane actually takes off.... Cheers!

I went here over the summer, and it was amazing! Being only about 85 pounds, when the plane took off, I took a fair tumble XD The sand attacking me didn't feel so swell either XD

he was running away.. the sand bits being blasted unto you hurts a lot. Eventually he end up in the sea :)

I'm from SxM and as a teenager we always watched tourists get sand blasted. There wasn't much else to do. :)

These are great shots... I love the expressions. I still can't believe how close the planes get. I'd bet they don't allow rookies to fly into these airports at all. Not for the faint of heart. I'd love to see the looks on the people's faces on the planes as well.

thanks! Yeah only experienced pilots fly here. On the plane it's a bit different feeling. If you are on a 747 or a300-400 you see the blue ocean and all of a sudden you land with hard braking. Not so amazing as being on the beach and seeing these planes land or takeoff.

Ha! I love how the guy is pulling a Jackie Chan in the middle of that. The goggle guy is a fun tidbit as well. :XD:
Awesome shot! And I loved your DD as well, good on you for proving it was real. :thumbsup:
