Last week I shared a video of landing at the world’s shortest commercial runway in Saba. This week’s show is the departure from that same airport and the flight to St. Martin. The departure was actually a bit anticlimactic, though I suppose that’s probably a good thing. As for the landing at SXM, well, one interesting bit about making the trip in the small De Havilland Twin Otter is that the line up for final approach is a lot more like a quick right turn and dropping in on the runway than a long, straight approach.
That was a lot of fun.
And the low cruising altitude for the flight – just 3000 feet over the ocean – means the views can be a lot of fun for the entirety of the 12 minute trip.
