When we flew into Jamaica, the pilot circled over the beach and banked the plane, he said, "If you look out the left hand side of the plane, you will
see such and such beach, and that strip to the right is our airport, we should be on the ground in a couple of minutes." Seemed tame enough, the
beach was pretty, the people looked like little ants, and the runway was a few inches long everything was pretty.......................Then my stomach
hit my throat, the plane dipped and turned, and we dove down to the runway we were just looking at and skidded to a stop! It had to be some kind of
high speed military maneuver, and it was nothing I would have ever expected in a commercial flight! It was kind of fun, the jet was a small 727, and
the pilot must have gotten a thrill out of it.
I didn't catch my breath for 20 minutes!!
