Comment "Lovely caribbean airports." on Juancho E. Yrausquin Airport, Caribbean Netherlands

Lovely caribbean airports.

An airport with attitude. Cliffs and sea on both ends, only 1300 ft. long. Mountain on one side.

The Dutch engineers thought it couldn't be done. A french pilot said flatten the bumps, fill the holes and I'll land on it. They did and he did. Now it's rated as one of the world's most dangerous airports. Nevertheless, no serious accidents have occurred here. Just make sure you hit the numbers and that your brakes are in good condition. Otherwise, have a nice swim.
