Maho Beach in Saint Martin is known globally for its close encounters with airplanes. But that doesn't make the phenomenon any less incredible, as a video taken by a recent tourist to the destination shows. Approaching Princess Juliana International Airport, the aircraft is captured in slow motion as it makes its final approach, which makes the footage even more amazing.see the amazing video after the cut
As its shadow engulfs the beach, the sheer size of the aircraft dwarfs the tourists underneath it, who pose for photographs and watch in awe. Seemingly closer than usual, the wheels look like they could be touched as turning heads follow its movement and numerous tablets and smart phones capture its landing. Passing the fence and arriving inside the airport, the plane's wheels appear to narrowly miss a taxi, which drives on by as if nothing ever happened.
