She doesn't need to worry. She can stand on top of that guys head on one hand, She should have no problem walking on two hands if one of the planes were to knock her feet off.

The people who report this are such wieners. While I’ve never been, I’m sure there are folks on that beach who throw balls and crap at the airplanes who are far worse than some couple just trying to get a fun picture for their Instagram or something.

One of these fine Thursdays, somebody is going to get decapitated by a very large landing gear tire from a heavy iron something that just may be a tad few feet lower than normal. Somebody will capture a vid on their trusty iPhone 10 which is capable of 2160p at the standard 60fps for viewing pleasure, that is for those who are interest in detailed view of said mess.

Almost fake news. Planes are at least 50 feet AGL at the Mayo Beach on short final 27. And I have never seen people trowing stuff at aircrafts.

I saw a miniature topless human pyramid on approach into SXM one day. That's a true threat to aviation safety. It was also a go day to not be the pilot flying.

Though I've never been there myself (I don't get out much) I would have thought the asshat ratio of the world was high enough that it guaranteed at least one person was doing that per day. Colour me surprised.

Well, that post certainly sucks without pictures!
