Rio’s Sugarloaf – Jaws, critters and a plane-spotters feast (video)

I went for Bond, I saw the planes fly by.

Rio’s Sugarloaf is emblazoned on my memory for the harrowing scene in James Bond film Moonraker and it was a thrill to ride up.

I did not expect that it is a plane spotter’s feast, with a breathtaking view of Santos Dumont Airport, the planes on takeoff passing behind the peak.

For those more terrestrially-focused, watch for the little critters darting around the trees.
