Private Jets at Skiathos, the 2nd St Maarten|CL-600,Hawker 750,800XPi|Skiathos PlaneSpotting

Few people with an interest in aviation will not have heard of the island of St Maarten, famous for its spectacular airport, Princess Juliana, where aircraft pass over Maho beach at head-height. The airport of the Greek island of Skiathos offers identical approaches and can be described as St Maarten’s cheap alternative, or even “The Second St Maarten Airport”. In this video, watch a Bombardier CL-600, a Hawker 750, and Hawker 800XPi take off right next to you and land right over your head at Skiathos’ runway 02.

    The first landing was an absolute JOY to watch. Hardly any smoke, bet the
    tires didn’t even squeal!

  7. TheGreatFlyer says:

    It was great, indeed!

  8. jetblueilikeful says:

    First landing, taxing with reverse thrusters still going WOW

  9. CyMirtos says:

    ti en to apu?

  10. TheGreatFlyer says:

    Auxiliary power unit. Τρίτη μηχανή στο πίσω μέρος του αεροσκάφους που
    χρησιμοποιείται ως γεννήτρια ρεύματος και σβήνεται πριν την απογείωση.

  11. CyMirtos says:

    ok 😛

  12. Epic Monomaxos says:

    Fix: APU is opened to generate power in the start-up and closed after
    engine Start-Up procedure is completed. Also it is opened after landing (As
    far as i Know)

  13. TheGreatFlyer says:

    Correct. It is needed to get the engines started and it is turned on just
    after landing to provide power when the engines shut down.

    Thank you very much!

  18. Mitchell McMullen says:

    why were the planes in reverse thrust while taxiing to takeoff

  19. TheGreatFlyer says:

    Honestly, I have no idea… Maybe to test the reversers, or they might be
    using reverse thrust instead of brakes!

  20. TheGreatFlyer says:

    Thank you very much! Expect more this August!

  22. manudan93 says:

    do they use reverse thrust on one engine to turn on the runway? and did
    this guy 2:30 turn off his engine?

  23. TheGreatFlyer says:

    They do use reverse when taxiing very often. Yes, he shut down his third
    engine, the Auxiliary Power Unit, an engine which provides power to the
