The Gustaff III Airport on the Caribbean island of St. Barts was ranked as the third-most dangerous airport in the world by the “Most Extreme Airports” program on the History Channel. It has a steep descent arrival over a hilltop traffic circle and a departure that skims over the heads of sunbathers.

Video shot by Sebastien Politano of Saint Martin, Guadeloupe, confirms the dangerous nature of the approach as it appears to show a small plane grazing a tourist trying to take photographs as it approached.

Politano, 46, was testing out his 360-degree camera at the traffic circle when this happened:
At the end of the video, the man with the white T-shirt and flowery shorts can be heard saying something that sounds like, “It hit me.”

The man told Politano he felt the wheel of the airplane touching his right hand,

Politano told Caters News that the man kept saying “it hit my hand, it hit my hand.”

“The guy showed me the traces of the tire on his hand afterwards,” Politano told Caters. “But I didn’t believe him. It was only when I saw the footage afterwards and saw how close it came that I believed him.

“I don’t think he knows how lucky he was it didn’t hit him harder.”

Another angle of the 360-video shows a motorcyclist duck his head as the plane shoots by.

The Gustaff III Airport is located in the village of St. Jean. It serves small regional commercial aircraft and charters with most planes carrying no more than 20 passengers, all of whom probably close their eyes during landings and takeoffs.

When traveling, especially if on an hours' long international flight, you'll be disoriented, unsettled by the time difference, and exhausted. Your body's entire system will be off schedule. Be smart and hire an airport transfer service; let the driver take you to your hotel, while you relax in the back seat.

Caribbean Island is one of the amazing islands that I've been visited. Airports like Gustaff III decreases the number of tourists who would want to go there. It seems like their pilots are not professionally trained. Why did they allow these kind of irresponsible people given that there's a lot of passengers at risk? I hope that the owner prevents these kind of incidents from happening because it is really disappointing.

A Schengen visa must always be applied at the Embassy (or Visa Application Centre) of the country of your main destination.
