I wish it would have shown more but I like the pictures of the airplanes flying over. I saw a piece on that airport on Ripleys Believe it or Not. I want to go there and watch the airplanes fly over.

It sure is Princess Juliana Airport in St.Martin/St Maarten. The island is 32 sq miles. The smallest land mass shared by two countries: France and The Netherlands. It`s in the French West Indies in the lower eastern part of the caribbean. It resides on the Dutch (south)side of the island and is surrounded by mountains. The airport code is SXM.

The reason why it is on the beach is because that is the best and most strategic place for a military base. Much of the rest of the island is hilly and mountainous. The airport, along with other parts of the island such as Ft. Louis, were previously military bases for the French, Dutch, Spanish and Americans. Until phase 2 is complete, visitors have to take stairs down and walk on the tarmac to the arrival gate.Read more about the airport-www.pjiae.com.

I know all of this because not only have I been there many times but my family has also lived on the island for many generations. This spot is a big tourist attraction...you all should see i

Sertrbl,

Its the only place on the island for the airport. On the side of the island where the airport is, the land between the lagoon and the ocean is really thin. The other side of the island is all mountains.

"Also, for those asking why they don`t come in from the other way, there are tall mountains on the other side of the lagoon. When you take off from St. Martin the plane either banks really hard or climbs quickly to get out of the way."
that a REALLY bad location fro an airport then...

"Haha.
Fake."

Not really. This happens on small islands where airports have to be near the edge for the runway to be long enough.

Damn...you "photoshopped" guys are such tools...Get a life...I`ve been to that beach in St. Martin. Its actually really cool. 747s come in about 30 feet off the beach because the runway is short. The other end of the runway is the lagoon in the middle of the island so if they don`t stop, in the drink.

Also, for those asking why they don`t come in from the other way, there are tall mountains on the other side of the lagoon. When you take off from St. Martin the plane either banks really hard or climbs quickly to get out of the way.

Its actually really fun to watch. I sat there for a few hours on my vacation a couple of years ago.

I have been there and It is loads of fun. People sometimes hold on to the fence as a jet takes off. They were not so much being blown into the water but I bet they were running toward it.

From Cowboysrgr8`s link:

You can`t see in this shrunken pic, but there`s a dent in the top of the fence, implying a REALLY close landing occurred once...
