Don't worry, all those photos were of Kai Tak which isn't used anymore. There's a new airport built off of Kowloon and HK Island that's much more clear and easy to land.

Well the beach landing could be real ...
As any New Yorker could tell you that drives on the Grand Central Parkway near LaGuardia Airport ... the runway is literally 3 lanes over from the Parkway.
When planes come in they are literally on top of your car.
I gotta get some shots of that ...

I would imagine that in the first picture, the people on the beach underneath the jet would probably have been killed. At very least they would have been blown halfway across the beach.

Its real I think, there are at least 3 different pictures of a plane VERY low over a beach on that site. All the other pics there are genuine so I don't think these are doctored.
I've also pictures taken on the same beach of people sunbathing with a plane getting ready to take off at the end of the runway, which is immediately behind the beach.

So much skepticism... I guess I can't really blame people too much, with all the Photoshop fakes we see every day.
Do a net search on "Princess Julianne Maarten" if you like. There's evidence all over the place that these photos are indeed real, and if you won't take my word for it you could at least try and find out for yourself.
Also, people are not killed or even affected by standing 50 feet underneath a plane on final. The engines would be on or near idle at that point in the profile. I myself have stood underneath a B1 bomber (at the end of the runway at RAF Mildenhall) as it passed overhead at around 100 feet on full afterburner, and I'm still here!
On the same day, a Mig 29 decided to do a go-around as he was right on top of us. He went to afterburners (maybe 40 feet above us) and my friend's baseball cap was sucked off his head and flew high in the air, landing softly - on the other side of the base's 20-foot tall chain link fence

I think the Mig pilot just wanted your friend's baseball cap...

Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
