That would probably be cool for the first half hour or so, then it would get annoying real quick.
Enter N 18.04034 W 63.11422 into your favor map program for a better perspective.
Why would this be a crash waiting to happen? Operations at that airport have been going on like that for decades. In fact, it is a tourist attraction. There are many many airports where the runway ends at the water, not before a beach too.
I've flown my Citation X to Princess Juliana International 3 times in 10 years. Never an issue with the people on the beach, or anything else. What IS fun to watch, is a Boeing 747-400 coming in. That will excite the masses.
I like the sign... (picture # 3)
Unless you like airplanes, in which case you'd spend the entire day there watching and getting blown over.
And after listening to Harriers land for the past three years at MCAS Cherry Point I think I'll pass on that beach. Don't care to have my ears destroyed anymore.
People STILL hang onto the fence. And when I finally go there someday, it will be my first stop too :)
"Mythbusters" did an episode on whether or not a taxi cab(rim shot!) passing near an active runway could be flipped over by a jet engine.
They tried but no cigar.The car suffered torn off bumpers and the interior was ripped up by the wind blast but no spectacular flips.
They did re-visit the myth with a school bus.
Now THAT was a flippin' good time as they say over in Flippin,Arkansas.
That Bluebird built bus went over on its side and rolled numerous times before the roof collapsed on the chassis while on its back.
