Famous as a tourist spot, Maho Beach in St. Martin is located so close to the airport that one can "feel" the planes overhead when landing and taking off. Recently a tourist was killed while doing this ...do you find this practice dangerous?




The Caribbean territory of Sint Maarten has long been a hot spot for aviation enthusiasts.

Princess Juliana International Airport is just metres from the beach, giving beachgoers the chance to watch planes take off.

But a New Zealand woman died after being thrown backwards by the force of a jet engine.

BBC News website readers who have visited the island share what it is like to experience jet engine blasts overhead.
