747 Landing

Ever driven on a road right next to an airport and seen a plane land? I've done it a few times since I live near an airport, and figured it was pretty scary at first, since it feels like the plane is just a few meters above you. Figures that was nothing; take a look at this - it's a 747 landing at St. Maartens, a carribean island. It's the smallest airport in the world that can actually accomodate a 747. Now this is kinda freaky:



Talk about close call! This isn't a one-off thing; this is how the planes land in this airport every day!
