Because the runway is so short in SXM, departing pilots have to stand on the brakes, spool the engines up, and then release the brakes, which causes the planes to lurch forward and go shooting down the runway like a bat out of hell. It's quite a sight, especially when you're as close to the planes as Maho Beach allows you to be!
