#1. ComentAtor. Thanks for the heads up re when the action starts. At first I thought this was either a ‘plane-spotting for insomniacs’ vid or another pranking the viewer vid and I ended it before wasting any more time. Then I saw your comments re action. Gracias.

And now – sigh. Once again, the adage applies, never underestimate peoples’ stupidity. Out of curiosity I quickly consulted a tech nerd pilot’s site. Roughly a jet’s exhaust at 150 feet = +/- 100 knots @ 94 F. 100 knots = 115 mph or 185 km/hr. So people wearing minimal clothes are getting hit by sand, rocks, debris travelling at 115 mph or 185 km/hr. That has to f-ing hurt. Not to mention be very dangerous for one’s eyes. I have been in desert sandstorms before and that debris stung or hurt like hell, actually pitted my sun glasses and was very unpleasant in the nose and lungs. Yet imbecilic tourists continue to flock to this location (this is not the first St. Maarten vid I have seen). Sigh.

Even though I can understand the fun part of exposing yourself to those strong "winds", I agree with #2 this got to be very dangerous, small sand particles hitting their eyes, scratching and injuring the cornea and possibly causing corneal ulcers...

And not speaking of the noise level that surely causes permanent hearing damage...
