Last KLM flight to St. Maarten

For 26 years, a tropical paradise has been home to one of the world's scariest and most exhilarating landings in the world. Today, that era came to an end.

The last KLM Boeing 747 touched down in St. Maarten at 11:03 a.m. ET yesterday.

Since 1990, Dutch airline KLM has served beach goers hair-raising landings as their jumbo jets soared at low altitudes over the sandy coast and onto the runways at Princess Juliana International Airport.
