South config (RWY 21) spotting location (Little St. Maarten :D)

This spotting location is usefull when rwy 21R or 21L is active, when winds come from the south, from HDG 160º to 240º with more than 10 knots.
This place is located at the "Ojos de Garza" beach,  at the north of the airport, we've called it "Little St. Maarten" because every aircraft flyies very low over the fence. Just imagine an Airbus A340-642 over there... just amazing.
For more info about this location or how to reach it, just e-mail me on the following e-mail:

If you go walking to the opposite side of the beach, for the morning spotting location there, you can get something like this 2 pictures.


RWY21L (This aircraft landed on this runway because it's used by all military aircrafts).
