Another St. Maarten!?

Mon Mar 05, 2001 6:09 am

I was on vacation with my family on the happy island of Aruba. We took a boat trip that took us near the airport. The planes fly right over you! There is no beach, but they fly really close. You could probably rent a boat and go right upto the edge. I do not know about local laws, but I think you can. There is an island near the airport, where you can stay. The planes fly about 100-50 feet above you. It was incredible seeing a KLM MD-11 fly right over you! Anyone else know about aruba?
