Planespotting at Princess Juliana Airport in Sint Maarten, known to aviation enthusiasts around the world for its spectacular low approach over Maho Beach, just got even better. Our friends at PTZtv recently launched a high-definition webcam located at the Sunset Bar and Grill right next to the runway. In addition to HD streaming video, this camera includes live audio as well as the ability to listen to live air traffic control audio.

PTZtv is also hosting a Flightradar24 receiver, providing enhanced coverage at Princess Juliana Airport (SXM) and helping to expand our coverage in the area. We’ve partnered with PTZtv to provide Flightradar24 access directly on the camera page, so you can track flights to and from SXM while watching live.

Here’s a sample of what the camera captures on a regular basis.

The camera’s default position looks out over the beach, but can be manually controlled for interesting arrivals or departures, like the ones below.

We’ve listed regular arrival and departure times for a few of the larger aircraft, but be sure to check our arrival and departure boards for the most up to date information. Also check back with the camera often as interesting private flights may not appear on the arrival and departure boards.

Video: Testing out the Etihad 787-10 Business Studio (plus a bonus look at economy)

In this video we take a ride on Etihad’s lovely 787-10 from Amsterdam to Abu Dhabi on EY78. Along the way we can’t figure out how to get our connecting boarding pass at Schiphol Airport; we have a chat with the Captain before departure; we get some beautiful views of Holland on the climb out; we test out the Etihad Business Studio seat, service, food and entertainment options; and we enjoy a scenic sunset descent over Iran and the Gulf.
