Montego Bay's Airport --Like St. Maarten

By Swayne Martin @MartinsAviation
Over spring break 2012, my family traveled to Montego Bay, Jamaica. We had a great time and of course did something aviation along the way!

As many people have done before, we walked around the downed fence at the end of the runway. (from the beach). This allowed us to get just feet from the runway for the takeoffs and landings at MBJ. It was so much fun!

We stood there, very similarly to SXM airport in St. Maarten, with planes flying just 20-30 feet over our heads. It was crazy!

All of the pilots taking off waved to us as they were getting to the runway for their rollout... except one. Sadly for us, we think he turned us in. Shortly after his takeoff, the airport police came up and asked us (nicely) to leave.

Oh well, we weren't there too long. It was definitely fun while it lasted! Once again, little excursions like this all contributed to my growing passion for aviation. I'm sure pilots enjoy having a layover here!!!
