St Barts landing

As a part of my day job I get to visit some pretty fun places, St Barts in the caribbean is one of them.
The landing into the airport is a tricky one, to the point that you need a special endorsement on your license to be able to land here. There is a very short runway, combined with a beach at one end and a 200ft elevation at the other end.
To add to it on this visit we had to circle for 20 minutes before landing as it was raining so hard the pilot couldn't see the runway.
