It doesn’t look safe, does it? A plane landing right over a beach, it almost looks like the plan is going to hit the people on the beach. I love this video which undoubtedly makes me some kind of travel nerd!
Maho Beach is a white sand beach, located on St Maarten in the Caribbean. It is hugely popular with plane spotters and aviation geeks for its extremely close proximity to one of the world’s most scary runways.
Runway 10 at Princess Juliana International Airport is so short, that pilots must make their final approach just 100 feet over the heads of sunbathers.
It is actually an extremely bad idea to sunbathe on this patch of sand. In 2017, a tourist was killed after being knocked over by jet blasts at this Caribbean airport notorious notorious for its dangerous runway.
