Ever been on a plane and prayed while take-off and landing? If so, then try avoiding a visit to Caribbean islands or more specifically Sint Maarten because it is a hotspot for close landings. Approach to Runway 10 is over the water and when a plane is landing it can barely keep away from the fence of the airport.


The History Channel ranks Princess Juliana Airport as 4th most dangerous airport in the world, first three being Tenzing-Hillary Airport (Nepal), Toncontín International Airport (Honduras) and Gibraltar International Airport (Gibraltar). Fascinatingly, the airport is also featured in the game called – Microsoft Flight Simulator X.
