The trick is to do both. Don't let taking pictures distract from what you're seeing - find a nice balance.

Once I got my pictures of the Northern Lights in Iceland, I put the camera down and just watched the show.

I try to do that as well, although I don't put the camera down just in case of those "fleeting moment" shots.

And you are ready to pic it up in a second if something different happens. As opposed to just watching it for what it is.

Don't want to give bad people any ideas but that is way to close for comfort. With no security on that beach you can literally throw whatever you want in the air and it'd hit that plane.

Unless you can lug a 2,000 pound boulder 250 feet in the air, you're not going to do much damage.

And, whatever you could do with your hand, or even a gun C'V, it likely wouldn't do much, as the plane on final approach, just feet from landing.

Grenade?

I guess that's more damaging, but I still don't think, given the momentum, trajectory, and distance, that it would result in loss of life.
