Princess Juliana International Airport on the Dutch side of the Caribbean island of Sint Maarten, is remarkably close to a public beach. Photographer Josef Hoflehner and his son Jakob Hoflehner have taken these extraordinary photos for his book, Jet Airliner: The Complete Works.
“It’s is an extraordinary place,” Josef Hoflehner said via email. “There simply isn't anything like this airport anywhere on the planet. With all the heightened security we have today, one can not get that close to a plane anywhere else without buying a ticket.”
And the Sci Channel has a video of the many crazy people getting really really close to it.
