Plane-Spotting Over Maho Bay, St. Maarten

They come from all over the world. From all walks of life. Young, old. Locals, tourists. They come to Maho Bay in St. Maarten. Everyday. And not for just the usual sun, sand, and sea reasons, either.

They come for airplanes. Low-flying airplanes on approach to Princess Juliana International Airport.

To take selfies with planes seemingly taking aim at their selves.

It’s a spectacle, arguably the Caribbean’s most popular photo-op, and one of the more chaotic scenes we’ve ever come across anymore.
