2. Hairy landing at Princess Juliana International Airport in St. Maarten.
One of the busiest airports in the Caribbean. To land on Princess Juliana International Airport, pilots have to fly over a little part of the beach, cross over the fence and then pass over the road and then land on the runway. It is the most dangerous airport in the world. The airport’s landing strip is just too short at only 7,150 feet long. Large aircraft need at least 8,000 feet to insure a safe landing while some really heavy planes require 10,000 feet. It was built for small and medium planes. However, jumbos such as A340s and the 747s do land here.
