Incredible footage shows just how close planes come to beachgoers at Sint Maarten Airport.One of the most fascinating airports worldwide! What a great moment!This St. Martin airport is known for planes flying low over Maho Beach as they come in for landing. The airport was started as a military airstrip in 1942. It was converted to a civilian airport in 1943. In 1964 the airport was remodeled and relocated, with a new terminal building and control tower. The facilities were upgraded in 1985 and 2001. Because of increased passenger traffic and the expected growth of passenger traffic in the near future, Princess Juliana International Airport is being heavily modernized following a three-phased masterplan, commissioned in 1997.
