Maho Beach, St. Maartens

For years, I had seen pictures of airplanes landing at this airport, just feet above the sunbathers' heads. I had forgotten where it was until our waiter at dinner the night before said we had to go to this beach the next day.  So, my wife and I got in a cab and spent a few hours watching the planes land while we sipped on a beverage. We missed the Air France 747 which comes in much lower than the Jet Blue flight from JFK. All the large jets' landing schedules are written on a surfboard next to the Sunset Bar so you won't miss the fun. The tarmac is about thirty feet to the right of the car separated by a chain link fence from the road.
