Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting my exclusive review of Tropical Sims' Aruba and Antigua airport sceneries.

Here are exciting results of "extremely lucky airport spotting photographer" (that is me) who took lots of screenshots of two airports TNCA Queen Beatrix International Airport located in Oranjestad, Aruba, TAPA V. C. Bird International Airport located on the island of Antigua five miles northeast of St. John's which is the capital of Antigua and Barbuda, and my plane that I was going to fly as pilot from TNCA to TAPA.......

Me arriving at early morning on time to see this local Aruba airline 737 departing on early morning business commuting flight to Miami

Image

Nice view of terminal and now let me look for my plane!!!

Image

Found my plane at gate one

Image

Time for pre-flight inspection of my plane

Image

Image

TNCA airport controllers informed me of bad weather affecting my flight route to TAPA and advised me to wait one or two hours until the storm cleared up so that meant extra time for me to take a nice stroll around the airport and take airport spotting photos........

Look there are two small planes used for ABC island shuttle service (ABC Islands mean Aruba, Bonaire, and Curacao islands)

Image

Took a 5 minute helicopter ride to get entire view of whole TNCA

Image

Nice parking indicators for all types of planes!!

Image

Darn they moved my plane to waiting area to allow arriving cargo planes to dock and unload cargo as this 748F arrived from Amsterdam to unload Dutch cheese imports bounded for all restaurants and hotels as well as supermarkets

Image

Image

Ahhh nice small local Bonaire airline commuter plane ready for flight to TNCM Princess Juliana International Airport

Image

Image

WHOA WHOA WHOA New MONSTER ENGINES 777-200LR had arrived non stop from Anchorage to drop off Alaskans definitely in bad need for warm waters, warmth, and nice tan!!!

Image

New arrival from Amsterdam!!!

Image

Waiting for clearance to taxi to runway 11 for return trip to Amsterdam

Image

Wow Aruba airport was so busy that planes had to wait on all kinds of aprons for their turns to taxi to runway 11 for take off

Image

Nice fuel depot and look at board saying 4,506 days without fuel accident
