The airport is famous for its short runway — at only 2,433 metres (7,980 ft),[9] it is barely long enough for heavy jets to land. Therefore, incoming airplanes approaching the island on short final for Runway 10 have to fly extremely low, passing only 10-20 meters (30-60 ft.) over relaxing tourists on Maho Beach. Pictures of low flying aircraft were published in several news magazines worldwide in the early 2000 and looked so unreal that some were even disputed as fakes. The thrilling approaches and ease of access for shooting spectacular images made the airport one of the world favorites place among planespotters. To meet international and local regulations a 150 meter safety extension was required.
