What a comfort! Jump out of airplane in a few meters from the ground, namely jump right into the sea… and annual leave already starting! WOW! It’s very practical! Bags leave in the plane. However, they may have to wait at the airport. It is so close. It is important to take good ransom and enjoy the benefits of summer vacation. Albeit a little loud holiday. But who cares. :)

太爽了!从离地面几米高的飞机上跳下来就可以着陆,准确地说是跳进了海里……一年一度的度假还没等飞机降落就开始了!哇塞!好刺激啊!行李都可以放在飞机上不用带下来,当然他们可就得在机场放一会儿了,但机场就在咫尺之外!戴上足够行李赎金很重要,这样一来你就可以好好享受这个独一无二的盛夏假期了。虽然有点吵,但又有什么关系呢?嘿嘿:)

We found this beach on wikipedia, and here is what wikipedia have to say about this very noisy beach:

我们在维基百科上发现了这个海滩,以下是该网站对其的介绍:

Maho Beach is a beach situated in St Maarten in the Netherlands Antilles, on the Dutch side of the island. The location is known worldwide because of the Princess Juliana International Airport that is situated immediately adjacent to the beach.

Maho海滩坐落于荷属安帝列斯群岛圣马丁岛上,面向荷兰。这个地方之所以全球闻名,是因为紧邻这里的海滩旁建有一座名叫朱丽亚娜公主的国际机场。

Incoming air traffic is known to have to touch down as close as possible to the beginning of runway 10 due to the short runway length of 2,180 metres/7,152 ft, resulting in low-flying aircraft on their final approach over the beach. Due to these low flying airplanes (including large passenger airliners such as the Boeing 747), the location is very popular with plane spotters.

由于第十跑道的长度只有2180米,所以抵达航班不得不在海滩尽头即降落,这样一来人们一抬头就是飞机庞大的身躯了。正是因为这些低空飞行的飞机(包括大型客机如波音747),这个地方游客络绎不绝,大家都争相一睹飞机从眼前头顶呼啸而过的盛况。

People standing on the beach may also be blown into the water because of the jet blast from aircraft taking off from runway 10. The beach can also experience large waves which makes it popular with windsurfers and skimboarders. The local government warns that closely approaching and departing aircraft can “result in serious injury and/or death.” An additional fence has been added recently behind runway 10 to prevent irresponsible tourists from hanging on to the main fence surrounding the runway to be “blasted” by the aircraft engines’ flow.

由于喷气式飞机的起落会喷出大量气流,站在海滩上的人有可能会被喷入海中。由于强大的气流,海边也经常有风浪,这对那些冲浪者来说无疑是好消息。当地政府警告游客,起降的飞机都有可能会“造成人员伤亡”,最近又在十号跑道的尽头架起了防护围栏防止不负责任的游客吊在主围栏上而被飞机引擎喷出的气流弄伤。

As of 2008, it is one of the few places in the world where one can view aircraft in their flightpath virtually just outside the end of the runway. Watching airplanes over the beach is such a popular activity that daily arrivals and departures airline timetables are displayed on a board in most bars and restaurants on the beach, and the Sunset Beach Bar and Grill has a speaker on its outside deck that broadcasts the radio transmissions between pilots and the airport’s control tower. Sign warning passers-by about the risks of jet blast.

截止到2008年,这还是世界上为数不多的几个可以直接在跑道尽头之外看到飞机起降的地方之一。在海滩上观看飞机已经成为了当地流行的活动,在大部分近海的酒吧和饭店里,都有显示屏播报当天飞机起降时刻表,在海滩上甚至有一个扩音器播放着飞行员和机场控制塔之间的语音对话。

The beach itself is white sand and has little to no vegetation because of the jet blast erosion. The Caravanserai Resort, the popular Sunset Beach Bar and other restaurants/night clubs such as Bamboo Bernies and Bliss are located nearby.

海滩本身是白花花的,因为飞机喷射气流的关系这里没有什么绿色植被。海滩周围还坐落着豪华度假村、人气爆棚的日落餐厅酒吧和其他的夜总会。

On October 16, 2008, the Maho area of St. Maarten suffered a direct hit from Hurricane Omar and destroyed the Sunset Bar and Grill while also destroying Bamboo Bernies and Bliss. As of November 2009, Sunset Beach Bar and Grill and Bliss have both re-opened. Omar reduced the beach to boulders, and damaged the nearby Royal Islander Club La Plage which re-opened February 14, 2009.

 

Runway 10/28 was originally runway 09/27 which was changed as a result of geomagnetic alterations since the original construction. This change occurred on November 1, 2008.
