Lowest flight landing on St. Maarten Airport
Princess Juliana International Airport (IATA: SXM, ICAO: TNCM) (also known as Saint Maarten International Airport) is the main airport on the Caribbean island of Saint Martin, located on the Dutch side of the island in the country of Sint Maarten.
The airport is perhaps best known for very low-altitude flyover landing approaches due to one end of its runway being extremely close to the shore and Maho Beach.
Feel the thrill of standing behind masses of heavy metal and between two big wheels passing next to you, and watch the aircraft literally drop on the runway, bounce, and touch down again!
Then get friendly waves by the pilots, while they have their cockpit windows open, and watch the captain look back, outside the aircraft, to check the tyre marks he had made before!
As plane spotters at Skiathos airport, also known as the Second St Maarten, we wanted a low landing, but we definitely hadn’t seen this one coming! Many people have said that it was the LOWEST LANDING they had ever seen at Skiathos and it is definitely one of the lowest landings in the world itself. After touchdown, two clear marks from the landing gear were drawn before the runway threshold! Beat that, St Maarten!
