The world famous Maho Beach, on the beautiful Caribbean Island of Saint Martin, is famous for the many photos of huge jet airliners flying so low — that it looks like beach-goers could actually reach up and touch them.
It’s also known for attracting thrill seekers, who attempt to withstand the forces of those jet blasts or use them to help fling them into the ocean like ragdolls.
