Airplane Madness

What we have for you today is something you've probably seen, but is always worth watching again, and again. And if you haven't seen it yet, hold on to your chair my friend.


After seeing that, we wanted to know a little more about this clip and decided to put our gloves on and do a little sleuthing. Turns out, what might look like an emergency landing, is actually common practice. In fact, there's an airport right next to that beach. How crazy?

And where are these shenanigans taking place? At Princess Juliana International Airport on the small Caribbean island of Sint Maarten (or Saint Martin, if you're on the French side of the island). The airport is the second busiest in the north eastern Caribbean, which means low flying aircraft and stunned sunbathers are a daily occurrence.

Well, we know where we're summering next.
