Photographer's Note

The airport on the island of Saba is famous for having the shortest commercial runway in the world. At only 1,300 only very small aircraft can land here and when they do so they must stop almost immediately. Likewise, when departing the planes have a very short takeoff roll.

Despite all the hype surrounding the airport there has never been an accident of any kind! Although perhaps not for the faint hearted, arriving and departing in Saba is an exhilarating experience!
