Also, if you like to do leasure driving on Saint-BarthÃ©lemy island, better keep your head when you are in close distance to the runway...!
The same can happen in Europe too. When you travel the highway near Barcelona, it may happen the Gothenburg Parachute Club coms in a bit too low for jumping:
If you like to travel in Asia, enjoy Pokemon and have no fear they might get entangled in the Tokio electric wires, watch them take off (just ignore the UFO in the right upper edge, it is meaningless):

North America is not an exception. Especially not when North American's F-100D comes in, it is not of much use to seek for shelter behind the Bellanca Cruisemaster:
While watching the air show in Reno, you better give way to the F-22, even if you may have the right of:
On the shore of the Black Sea, people are considering the meaning of life. The passing Diamond DA-42 gives a hint to Romanians:

While in Russia or Ukraine, the Beriev A-42 fulfills the same purpose:
Not far from there, you can have shake-hands with the pilot of a powered parachute - while only one of you is in the air, of course:
What to learn from that all? Especially in your right upper edge,...:

A marvellous presentation! You never disappoint.

This is taken from an aircraft that has just left Hobart airport bound for Melbourne.
The single runway is oriented NW-SE. This plane obviously took off towards the south, and then turned north again. The beach is Seven Mile Beach.
From Warren Williams Blog.
On the other end of the airport is the Tasman Highway - the highway linking Hobart with the east coast, and just the other side of that is Barilla Bay.
Oysters are farmed there, and are supposed to be very good, but I wouldn't know, not liking oysters!
You can find the airport easily by searching for "hobart airport tasmania" in Google Maps, and I guess Google Earth
