I just realized that most of my headlines on this blog have exclamation marks. I'm sorry! I mean, I'm sorry.
Head down to St. Martin (St. Maarten, if you like) in the Caribbean, and go to the beach at the end of the runway at Princess Juliana International Airport. It's a hip place for planespotting. Airliners on approach to the airport pass about 30 feet to 60 feet over beachgoers' heads!
Here's a great video of a KLM Boeing 747 landing. Yikes!
