KLM Close Call

We enjoyed a nice week in St. Maarten.  One of our excursions during the week was to visit the Sunset Bar at the end of the airport runway.  As you can see, the runway starts at the beach and we watched a number of big and small planes land.  This spot is popular with the locals and tourist because of how close you can get to the planes.  The KLM flight into St. Maarten is the largest flight that lands here and it barely fits.  It is the “must see” flight if you’re heading to this spot. 

It didn’t get the best weather for this excursion, but we got what we came for, which was the close encounter with the landing planes. 

Have a great Christmas later this week.
