It’s St. Martin, a little island in the Caribbean, half French and half Dutch, little pricey, but it’s supposed to be amazing, plus the airport runway starts at one of the beaches and gives amazing close ups of incoming aircraft but considered as the most dangerous airport in the world, see for yourself.

    fake

    Actually “#1 Guy” This airport actually exists. St. Martin is notorious for this Airport. When the bigs ones are taking off, you can actually get blown off the beach!

    I have to go there.

    A guy I used to work with was vacationing there, and was strolling on the beach. He got clipped in the head by a wheel from one of those planes’ landing gear. He was in a coma for several months, and since waking is completely paralyzed on one side, cannot speak, and, well, they aren’t sure he has any cognitive function either. He reacts to things, but there is no telling what is behind the reactions.

    His medical insurance just ran out. His partner can’t keep his business going, so they closed down. His house will likely be sold, and his aged mother will most likely be taking care of him for the rest of his so-called life.

    Still want to go there?

    Your lying its like a complete fake fake that will happen, they are probably careful… i went to that beach and it was quite a high distance, my husband would of had to jump up pretty high….

  6. joe on July 29th, 2009 3:52 am

    if the plane were low enough to hit him in the head it would have come up short of the runway and probably crashed. nice story though

  7. zar on August 3rd, 2009 10:47 am

    the airport does actually exist and there are a lot of low flying landing planes. planes landing here need to land as soon as they reach the runway to avoid overshoots on the other residential end of the runway. but about the guy hit by a plane’s landing gear, i agree with joe.

  8. angelo on August 3rd, 2009 11:02 am

    wow, yeah. zar is right..the images above are real. and what zar said is real too, about the runway. the airstrip is only 2100+ meters compared to 3500+ meters to other standard airports…incredibly short indeed specially for heavy jets..so no wonder the planes need to touch down as soon as they reach the short airstrip.i didnt hear any news about a plane landing here undershooting the runway, though there are lots of almost but not intentional undershoots. due to the reason.

  9. xxx on August 10th, 2009 11:41 am

    whoa.actually, zar, there are no residential part on either end of princess juliana international airport’s runway. the other end of the runway pavement has a road just on the other side of the barricade and 150+ meters of sand before it reaches the beach,, while on the other side, the one you see in the pictures above, has a road and, if the plane overshoots, it has only less than 30 meters of sand and it goes down the beach..

    hey guys, why dont you include caticlan airport, it has a very short runway, 1000meters only, plus a hill about 45 meters high close on the other end of the runway. just this year, two turbo prop twin engine small plane had overshooted it..the reason that the plane goes low then pulls up because of the hill and then unable to go down quickly to touchdown as soon as possible…take note, those are SMALL aircrafts already…but still they overshooted it. the first one hit the wall at the end of the runwayn then the wall was removed.then few months later, another overshooted it and was stucked into the canal..poor.

  11. Dan on September 24th, 2009 9:23 am

    You could also consider Long Island MacArthur Airport. The runway’s pretty short there, even if it’s not surrounded by water.

  12. bojo on October 8th, 2009 7:38 pm

    I thought that courchevel was the worst? Only trained pilots can land there, as it is in a valley and the runway is not flat…

  13. bobby on October 8th, 2009 7:40 pm

    Surely you would hear the plane coming and duck if it was going to hit you? That’s a lie about getting hit.

    the first picture is phuket in thailand, not st. maartins.

  15. how to get rid of belly fat on December 22nd, 2009 11:20 pm

    Hey DaveH

  16. Emily on February 26th, 2010 6:56 am

  17. Reza on April 15th, 2010 1:03 pm

    I believe it maybe he got a big head I look like low but it is something like 8 meters high idiot BIG HEAD

  18. Reza on April 15th, 2010 1:06 pm

    Or maybe the cessna plane that i can believe yes

  19. Maverick Money Makers Review on May 12th, 2010 10:23 am

    Wow, very big aircraft,

  20. Kristina on May 17th, 2010 7:03 pm

    Of course I want to go there! I wont let someone elses injuries and tribulations from the place stop me! If that were the case why would I ever drive a car or jump on an airplane again, let alone walk out the door? No way. Someday I will visit this place. Maybe I will die, but maybe I’ll have the best time of my life. No point in wondering for the rest of my life.

  21. Satellite Direct on May 21st, 2010 11:59 am

    I have to go there too.

  22. Cabinet Woodworking Plans on June 6th, 2010 5:49 pm

    It will be very great to stand on the beach and seeing the plane landing.

  23. Pinkyleftbrain on June 7th, 2010 8:39 pm

    And at the other end of the runway from the beach is a high mountain. It’s not infrequent for planes that are taking off that direction to have to stop somewhere else to get more fuel. The climb out is pretty steep too, depending on departure direction. As to being ‘unsafe’? If that airport is ‘unsafe’ then so are all airports. When was the last crash at that airport? *Any* airport can be ‘unsafe’ at any moment. St Maartin has a fantastic airport. It’s the best place for it on that island.

  24. fb siphon on June 20th, 2010 10:23 pm

    wow… its great to see. I think i must make a visit there next time when I go. I have visited. I might need to go next month in WI.

    If you look close you can see that the trees and the buildings is the same :)

  26. Scott on September 3rd, 2010 6:06 am

    So are you all just talking out of your butts, or does someone actually know something about this place?

  27. raj on October 24th, 2010 2:44 am

    guys…jus hav a look at lukhla airport,located at an altitude of 9000+ on himalayas…

  28. Moretocome on October 24th, 2010 3:16 pm

    Holy jesus!! I guess it comes to this; anyone that is 6 feet tall (or taller) needs to have warning becons on their heads. And, let’s make sure that the toilet tanks on the aircrafts don’t flush on top of people. AH!

  29. Common Sense on January 25th, 2011 7:23 pm

    When a giant aircraft is flying at accelerating speeds in your direction, GET OUT OF THE FUCKING WAY.

  30. Aybee on January 26th, 2011 7:30 pm

    i would love to visit this place…this is crazy…

    Overshooted? Really? Where did you learn grammar, because as far as I know only preschoolers talk like that.

  36. awesome123man on October 13th, 2011 9:25 am

    bin there super scary when a plane comes in it gets super windy when a plane comes in there are towels flying everywhere!

  37. Nisha on February 10th, 2012 1:10 pm

    Those who are challenging it, see youtube videos for this airport. It has very short runway and they are showing many videos of different airplanes landing and taking off.

    Shouting ‘fake, fake’ without reason. Why blog poster need to prove anything to you. If you don’t believe, just keep watching your face in the mirror. I guess you will start to shout ‘fake, fake’ there too.

  38. tulingan on September 13th, 2012 7:58 pm

    the photos are fake. aircraft landing gears are only about to open before touchdown? come on men!

  39. baseball on April 21st, 2013 10:52 am

    Which was each attention-grabbing in addition as insightful!
    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

    Wonderful link…. I love to see more…of different countries of the world…

  41. Reg on July 8th, 2013 10:49 am

    I will be spending 6 nights in St Maarten in September..cant wait.
    The landing and taking off will be fantastic. For added fun Septmber is the most prevalent time down there for Hurricanes..
