9. Up, Close and Personal
In a small Caribbean island called Saint-Martin, there exists an airport with extremely short runways that airplanes are forced to make really low touchdowns. With the airport really close to the beach, tourists flock to the island to experience the enchanting view of a landing plane in the comfort of a white sandy beach. The landing planes are so popular that hotels, bars, and restaurants tend to display airline arrival and departure times with some going as far as broadcasting communication between the planes and the control terminal.
