Juliana Airport haves an exlusive approach type in the world, the BBA (Big Boobs Approach).

Posted by Chasen Richardson on April 16, 2007

According to those two red dots on the right, the captain is coming in below the glideslope. Excellent!

Posted by Jeff on March 16, 2007

Yep....good timing. Nice shot

A nice set of Jumbo´s ;-) The colours of the Jumbo (in the back by the way) reminds me of the good old 747-200 from KLM. Great job, simply amazing

Posted by Hawak on November 10, 2006

That all it takes to make a good approach ....

Posted by Daniel Taylor on October 30, 2006

Ohh man, awesome, real nice, perfect. Oh and the plane was OK.

Posted by G_SEN on September 02, 2006

No wonder the aircraft always approach so low...

Posted by Myosat on August 06, 2006

I hope the Captain and Co-Pilot were not distracted from the scene below in order to make a perfect landing.

Posted by STEVE SPEARS on June 29, 2006

I don't care about the ten bucks, like Vic, "that's it!" I'm packing my bags too! Sarah, your welcome to join us!!

Posted by Pablo Fraga on March 19, 2006

Now they've found another reason to fly that approach even lower! :D

Posted by Adam "I 26" Wuisman on March 19, 2006

No need for runway lights or identification markers, because those boobs could bring any aircraft in from miles away! Excellent shot!

Posted by shots4u on March 17, 2006

Posted by tuto on March 15, 2006

I don't know what is the capt thinking about the "Heineken girl" below him when he's trying to land ;)

Posted by Paul Thompson on March 15, 2006

Easily the best SXM shot ever. It captures the party atmosphere & the lighting is excellent. Nice job! I have to wonder if the topless women ever notice or care when you include them in the photo...

Posted by Stephan Rossouw - FliteZoneImages on March 15, 2006

EXCELLENT PIC !!!!!!! Its a wonder the crew didn't miss the approach though!!! My new background on my laptop.. WELL DONE !

EXIF stands for Exchangeable Image File Format. It was developed by the Japanese Electronics Industry Development Association (JEIDA) in an effort to simplify and standardize the exchange of data between imaging devices and software. Exif is a variation of JPEG, used by almost all digital cameras to record extra interchange information to image files as they are taken. The type of information stored in a file varies by camera model, but it can include such things as date and time a photo was taken, resolution, camera settings used for the shot, amount of compression applied, color information, whether or not the flash was fired, shutter speed, name of the camera owner, and so on.

Most photo manipulation software released after 2001 supports the reading of Exif information, however, if you want to ensure that the information is retained within your picture files, you must use software that supports Exif. The Exif information is lost if you save a picture in a program that doesn't support it. There is also specialized software specifically for extracting and editing Exif data.

Please be aware that, while most photos displayed on JetPhotos.Net contain EXIF information, some do not.
