At Maho Beach, St. Maarten, beachgoers are accustomed to watching for the airplanes and jets to come in because the beach is located right next to the landing strip. In this video, a massive jet has pulled on to the runway and is about to take flight. When you see it begin to sail onto the runway, you will be blown away by its massive size. In seconds, the jet begins its approach for takeoff and what happens next is something you have got to see to believe!
When the jet blast occurs, many of the beachgoers simply were not prepared. The blast caused them to go flying into the sea. Some of the beachgoers have obviously been there before and know what to expect. They hold on with all their might and cling to the fence that separates the airport from the beach.
