Low flying aircraft!

Hahaha! I started the day with some specific aims of what I wanted to blog today, but those plans (as usual) have gone out of the window as I’ve responded to events as they’ve unfolded throughout the day.

Thanks mainly to Brenda Hoisin’s input, the plans for today have been radically altered, probably for the better. And I’ve responded because of info received, mostly from Brenda, which has allowed me to input more info in turn and hopefully enhance your SL naturism!

Elsewhere, you’ll find the links to Eden’s ‘Lion’ landmarks, and while leafing through the Eden blog, I happened to chance upon a reference to the Eden airstrip while simultaneously discussing some RL naturist locations with an SL friend.

We happened to be discussing St. Maarten, in the Carribean, which also happens to be a favoured naturist destination for many US naturists through its Club Orient resort.

So far, so good. But wait! The following photo is not faked!

Yep. That plane is actually that low as it crosses the beach!

And so does this one, lol!

In order to give themselves enough braking space, pilots apparently have to use the entire, and I do mean entire, length of the runway. Thus, they cross the beach literally feet above sunbathers’ heads. If you youtube it, you can apparently find footage of planes actually clipping the fence as they cross the beach.One of those moments of synchronicity. I rounded up a Dutch friend, Sanne, to catch a few rays right at the end of the Eden Naturopolis runway. No beach here, so (gulp!) Sanne had to stand right on the runway in order for Harry to capture a few shots. Fortunately, no planes were coming into land at that time. But I really do fancy being stretched out near the Eden runway as a pilot brings his plane into land! 🙂
