This is really the “money” shots of this review. Few things are as sweet as GoPro videos and I have tried to capture what if feels like to spend an entire day at St. Maarten’s SXM airport and Maho Beach.

What you are going to see is the view from all sides and even right behind a jet taking off (a turbo prop because I am not the “fence surfing” type). Also the views from the water, the Sunset bar and more. All I can say is enjoy!

My only regret is not getting a shot from the water of an MD88/90 taking off. You can see in the video just how violent the blast is and how far the wash goes into the bay. It is truly amazing and VERY loud.

If you have never made the time to visit this place you need to. It is like nothing else on earth! – René

    Too bad KLM is not flying the 747 anymore. It would be amazing to see that monster landing there.

    • @Santastico – Yep. Was told it was a gas/weight issue. Still, there were some sweet widebodys that came in!
