St Maarten airport (2004)

In St. Maarten, there is a beach behind the airport. We had a couple of hours there. The airplanes are landing just about 20 meters above our head.

But the takeoff is also interesting. I tried to record it into video (with a Fuji FinePix 5000), but the hot sand was so burning so that I had to hide behind the car after a couple of a second, so the end of the video resembles to a disaster-movie:

Another movie from the same place (landing, no my video):


  1. Hi,
    You are right.The plane lands at so lower height of our head.It is very thrilling experience to feel.It is sad that you weren't able to take video but it is tough job to do.
