After 3 weeks at Maho Beach I think I can say that Sint Maarten is one of the most unique airports in the world. I've standing a few times on the guardrail to catch the 28 departures but when I saw this one almost hitting the fence, from that time I've never done it anymore...WOW!

Isn't that a bit unnecessary for a small plane?

"Isn't that a bit unnecessary for a small plane?" - I agree with you; 747's come in much higher than that with no issues.

A dream beach :-)
Doesn't it look like if the couple on their knees and the guys standing and taking pictures in the middle of the pic are looking at something behind the plane? It' s like the aircraft is several meters closer to the camera than them.

Awesome pic of a VERY low approach. To give some perspective, the rocks next to the wall by the young man in the light blue shirt are approximately on the extended centerline of the SXM runway. I would say this pilot is in error and has no business being that low over the beach.

I remember going there a couple of years back. Got told about 10 times by the security to step away from the fence. Good times =]

This photo captures the fun part of flying-giving thrills to those on the ground and in the aircraft. It seems too close for the lady in the purple dress, though! She's turning her head and appears to be on the move!
