Default St. Maarten - Shore excursion to the airport??



I was watching worlds most dangerous airports one day, and low and behold St. Maarten was on there. It was soooo amazing, planes fly right over the beach when they land, and when they take off you can feel the pressure from the jets. Does anyone know how far the airport is from where the carnival Victory is going to dock? I'll be there on 12/11/2010 docking times are 7a-5p ... My friends and I realllly want to see this for ourselves any help would be greatly appreciated.

We were there last week. We did a private tour through Bernard's Tours. You could goggle him and get the website. It think that picture is a bit of an exaggeration....they got close but not quite that close. You have to be there around 2:30 - 3:00 I think for the big Air France and American Airlines jets that come in.
