Maho Beach & Princess Juliana Airport
Wednesday, 2nd August 2006 by James Turnbull
Pictures of Maho Beach on the Dutch Antilles island of St Maarten have been cropping up on the net for years – usually with people claiming them to be the result of a photoshopping competition.
You see, the island is so small that the main runway is right next to Maho beach and jumbo jets have to fly in very low over the beach to make sure they can stop before the end. This results in holidaymakers having huge airliners just metres over their sunbathing – here’s a bunch of such pictures, none of which are photoshopped.
