Having been there: this is a situation where there is one runway aligned with the prevailing wind, and a good sized hill a ways off the departure end on the extended centerline, and that beach is as close to the numbers as it can be. On short final it looks as though you are going to scrape the beachgoers with the gear. Every takeoff is done as a short field takeoff followed by a quick departure turn. So anyone who frequents that beach knows that every departure is going to go to takeoff power holding the brakes. So this is an outcome waiting to happen on every takeoff, and you'd have to not be paying attention to see it coming.
Shes more than stupid falcon2000driver. they all crazy as hell
From the BBC Documentary: "On holiday from working as head cashier for HMV at the local W.H.Smith in Maidenhead, Sarah, disappointed that the resort did not have a bungie jump, zip line, or male strip club, decides to partake in a thoroughly invigorating activity designed to appease her inner dare devil, namely....chasing airbuses. If she could only get past the fence."
That is a nice rear shot of the bikini clad chick running over there, she could COME to my aid!!!
H_ll I'm going just for that!
I am not for one on moving the fence, we learn from those that gone before us......Can't protect ever one from stupid mistakes......That runnway is the best and everyone that goes to TNCM for vacation goes to that beach for the runway!
