The runway is so small in St Martin, that planes have to start landing over the near by beach. And whilst it was cool to see the small ones, it's when the large Air France planes come in (737s?) that you get blow off your feet, and hurtling into the sand, covering your ears as the noise of a jet landing right over your head threatens to blow your brains sky high.
We spent hours watching planes land... When we're on holiday, we know how to party!
