Re: Flight Enthusiastics

What makes it even more cool is at the far end of the beach is a outside bar called The Sunset Beach Bar where you can sit out sipping on a Marguarita watching the big jets come in, the beautiful turquoise water, white sand and get this...topless babes.

Life doesn't get a whole lot better.

Re: Flight Enthusiastics

Hey anybody can go. From Scotland it's pretty far though. Here's a couple of pics. The first one is my wife and I and some other pics.

Re: Flight Enthusiastics

Yeah that's pricey. From Detroit to Heathrow or Glasgow, we have paid about $1100.

For this trip the flight to Ft. Lauderdale FL is about $700 for 2 and then about $1700 for both for the cruise.

Photographers from all over the world sit out at the bar taking pictures and videos.

Here's another pic of the 737 that blew me (sand that is, hehe). Look at the pilot taking a pic.
