Just on way to airport. Stopped off at the beach at the end of the runway. Picture is of a plane landing only feet over head. When a jet takes off it blows sand everywhere and makes huge waves for people to surf on. There are some young folk daft enough to try to hold onto the runway fence right under the plane. The heat of the engines is intense and they are at risk of being blown across the road. We will be taking off away from the sea and the planes have to bank steeply to avoid the mountains. We will se for ourselves what it's like!
It was a very steep takeoff with a 220 degree bank as we have headed west to Curaçao - now have an hour in transit. On a plane with an upstairs - Bill very excited and hopes to explore. Not sure what he expects to find.
