Elite Air-Managed Citation X Flies Into Famous Beach Airport


One of the Houston-based Citation Xs managed by Elite Air was caught in fight approaching and leaving the renowned Maho “Kerosene” Beach in Saint Martin this past spring.

In the top right photo, the super-midsize jet is doing its best approximation of the well-known picture (top left) of commercial carrier Air France approaching the runway over the beach. It’s not quite as dramatic, but it was still a thrill for Captain Richard Byrd and SIC Justin Williams.
