If you are a thrill seeker, pack your bags and head to the Maho beach in the Caribbean. The beach attracts thousands of plane-spotters who gather at the beach to watch famously low aircraft landings at the nearby Princess Juliana International Airport.
Recent footage of an American Airlines commercial jet landing at the airport is making waves on the internet because of how close it was to the heads of the people on the beach. No doubt that the airport's runway is dubbed the scariest one on the world.
Because the runway's length is half as short when compared to the runways found at international airports, planes are forced to land close to the beach so that they can touch down where the runway starts. Plane-spotters make the most of this phenomenon and whip out their phones and cameras to capture the madness. Many restaurants and bars around Maho beach display flight arrival information so that people know when to rush out to the beach.
