Notes:

I sat of first row, middle seat on Winair PJ-WIL aircraft. When the pilot align with the runway, I loosed the seat belt, a lot, to get high enough to see through the first officer's window, already a little inside the cockpit (no cockpit doors on the DHC-6 Twin Otters), focus, shoot, sit, fasted seat belts, felt the touch down. After landing, I was even short of breath after such a quick gymnastic. At least I get to provide a different view of Maho Beach and Juliana Airport. Too bad seconds before all this it rained and the windshield was not so clear.
