If you’re a fan of airplane spotting, then odds are that you have heard of St. Maarten and its airport that provides brave enthusiasts with the spotting thrill of a lifetime.

As the folks who are ready to see some airplane action stand on a nearby beach, the aircraft zoom overhead, landing just feet away at the adjacent airport.

It most certainly provides for quite the view as spectators are able to get an up close and personal view of the belly of commercial aircraft as they glide through the sky.

Check out the video below that shows a compilation of planes coming in hot to St Maarten and tell us what you think of these ready and willing spotters.

Would you be willing to head out there and try to catch a glimpse of a plane that is flying that close to the ground? It seems like a pretty sketchy place to be!
