You must see these pictures (Princess Juliana airport)
« on: April 13, 2008, 04:52:50 PM »
on saint martin there are only two airports, one is Princess Juliana international, voted to be one of the hardest airports to land at...the strip is 2,180 metres/7,152 ft so large planes have to fly really low right over a beach, the pictures are insane

also look for some videos there are great ones, but some are fake

Airliners.net and many other sites have pictures from Princess Juliana Airport.

Here is one I took in 2002...that beach is quite amazing.
