Jumbo Jet Boeing 747 Blast

A KLM Jumbo Jet Boeing 747 blast throws People in to Maho Beach in St Maarten. Maho Beach is a beach on the Dutch side of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin. It is famous for the Princess Juliana International Airport adjacent to the beach. Due to the unique proximity of low flying airliners, the location is very popular with plane spotters. This is one of the few places in the world where aircraft can be viewed in their flight path just outside the end of the runway. Watching airliners pass over the beach is such a popular activity that daily arrivals and departures airline timetables are displayed on a board in most bars and restaurants on the beach.
