Juliana International Airport serves the Dutch part of the island of Saint Martin.
The airport is famous for its short runway — at only 2,433 metres (7,980 ft), it is barely long enough for heavy jets to land. Therefore, incoming airplanes approaching the island on short final for Runway 10 have to fly extremely low, passing only 10-20 meters (30-60 ft.) over relaxing tourists on Maho. Beach.
