Video coverage from the KLM 747 Cockpit
By Sonja van der Drift
St Maarten ( Airport code SXM ) has one of the most photographed and most challenging runways in the world. Thousands of videos can be seen on YouTube and other social media sites, usually taken by tourists with shaky hand-held cameras as the airliners fly inches above their heads. KLM Airlines have put professionals to work both in their 747 and on the sandy beach to capture the scenes in this stunning video.
