Check out this airport strip

I just watched a travel program on tv about the island of St. Maarten. The airport departure and arrival at one of the strips is just over a beach. This is totally crazy.

I’ve landed there, and it’s pretty cool to see the smiles on peoples faces as you come in to land, what this doesn’t show is taking off. The runway faces the volcanic mountain, once the plane takes off, it has to veer very sharply so that you don’t run into the mountain, it’s a very weird feeling

I was there in the hotel. I was thinking that it would be problem and noisy but actually we loved it! It was different experience and airplanes would arrive and take off during the day.

hearing tests…I said HEARING TESTS anyone? lol

Quite an experience being on the beach when a big one flies over but not as noisy as I expected.

exactly … I was afraid that it will be terrible but we kinda waited to see when the next airplane will lend down. It was fun experience and I personally liked it!
