This is one place where one of the tourist attractions is the tourists themselves arriving and departing!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun October 24, 2010:
Stunning. One day I'll go to that beach, just to see them depart and land! :)

Amazing place to Plane Spot!!

A visitor from China posted Sat August 18, 2007:
Hope i can be there someday in the near future.
it seems i can touch the aircraft on the beach.

A visitor from Germany posted Tue July 3, 2007:
Great photo!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu February 8, 2007:
Nice shot. Its these kinds of pictures that always remind me of the Netherlands Supreme Court's jetblast judgement of a few years ago on airport liability for jetblast injuries sustained at Juliana. Its a warning to all spotters; don't stand to close to those gates when a plane like that A340 is about to take off.

A visitor from Belarus posted Sat October 7, 2006:
The passengers should have considered they were landing on the beach but not on the runway

A visitor from Turkey posted Tue September 5, 2006:
What the hell is that noise..? ohh sorry boss... ;)

A visitor from Canada posted Sat May 13, 2006:
I've been to St. Maarten several times, it's an amazing island and the approach to the runway is just as amazing. For a first time visitor it could be heart stopping moment. I just love this picture.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue April 25, 2006:
Found this great site by accident. While looking through some of the photos, I came across this one where I recognise one of the guys in the Shot! What were the chances of that happening? a million to one? That's why I've awarded 5 stars.

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 1, 2006:
This is a very unique shot.this is very low!nice shot

A visitor from Australia posted Sun February 26, 2006:
Its amazing how close the flights acctually come to the beach. i wonder if there will be any crashes there. i wish i could go there.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu February 16, 2006:
Look at all those happy people...Is it possible that the happiness has anything to do with this fine aircraft?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed February 15, 2006:
Very pretty to see!

A visitor from - posted Sun February 12, 2006:
I hope the couple on the left have the plane in the picture they had taken...

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 21, 2006:
I have to go to the Netherlands Antilles, for two reasons, and one are these incredible approaches into the airport, Its a great picture in that you can literally almost touch it

A visitor from United States posted Mon January 9, 2006:
I like the way the Airbus looks so close to the beach. Makes me feel like the plane will hit these people, eventually.
