Did anyone ever see Princess Juliana Airport in St. Marteen? Heres a vid of a few planes taking off and landing. Its so close to the beach that when the planes throtttle up people get blown back from the jet wash. http://youtube.com/watch?v=cZJm3ezzWOQ

Yep, been there several times as a pilot. It is interesting when approaching from the air, but it is very entertaining if one is watching from the ground. There is a bar right at the approach end of the runway. I see people (usually after a few beers) hang on to the fence when the planes are throttling up. I stood out on the beach (one time only) while Air France's B747 flew over top of me. Yes, I was sober.
