Fascinating Clip Of An Airplane Flying Crazily Close To Land

Beaches are known for their relaxing and laidback vibes, but the Maho Beach in the Caribbean Islands is more famous for its breathtaking views of airplanes landing thrillingly close to the ground.

Fret not if you can’t experience that firsthand for yourself.

Avid traveler Paul Luning has recently uploaded a fascinating, slow-mo clip to his Instagram showing an airplane flying crazily near to the beach as it makes its descent.

Check out the eye-opening clip below:

Flying frequently tends to make one either bitter or obsessed with aviation. I fall into the latter category. Visiting Maho Beach in Saint Marteen was always on my bucket list. It's as crazy as it looks — planes landing just feet from a public beach.
