No more Maho beach plane spotting for a while😔


Hopefully with the support of the Dutch government, all should be fine soon

Yeah, I’ve already seen some pictures of this. Looks terrible and I hope they can rebuild the lovely Princess Juliana International Airport becuause it is an iconic place for any plane spotter.

🇳🇱 #NAF49 with Dutch soldiers and Hurrican Irma relief supplies filed to Curaçao, but hoping for St Maarten—SXM by the time they’re in the area.

Considering it’s an important hub for the Caribbean it would be extremely surprising if they didn’t

I don’t think “lightly destroyed” is a good way to describe this.

Yeah there’s no such thing as “lightly destroyed” either it’s destroyed or it’s not. I fixed it.
