If you are passionate about airplanes, aviation, flights and travel, you have surely heard of the famous beach in Sint Maarten - Maho Beach.

It is the ideal place for lovers of airplanes and photography, but also for those who want to experience strong sensations when the "jet blast" is unleashed on them. But here we meet one of the most difficult airports in the world - Princess Juliana International.

The airport has a long run of only 2 300 meters, and at one end is bordered by Maho beach. Large aircraft need to pass very low to this beach to "enjoy" the full length of the runway.

At the end of 2014, KLM collaborated with journalist and photographer Sebastiaan Knoops to create a sensational video. On various social networks, YouTube and profile sites we can see thousands of photos and videos taken by tourists on holiday in Sint Maarten, but few are those taken from the cockpit.
