The Maho Beach Experience: AAL 687 – MIA to SXM
By popular demand, my recent flight was from Miami to St. Maarten. I always enjoy flying to this unique airport. My last flights in the sim to SXM were on KLM MD-11 from AMS and some Island Hopping on DHC-6 some time ago. This time it was on American Airlines flight 687 from Miami. Scheduled aircraft on this flight is a Boeing 737-800.
After take-off on runway 08R in Miami, we will be following SID SKIPS1. Before flying over water for the rest of the flight, we will overfly downtown Miami. FL is 37,000 feet and approach into SXM will be the only option available: a visual approach for runway 10 with the stunning and famous final over Maho Beach.
A little video of the final approach.
I hope you enjoyed this flight, I sure did.
