The island is served by many major airlines that bring in large jets, including Boeing 747s and Airbus A340s, the 2nd largest current Airbus aircraft, carrying tourists from across the world on a daily basis. This fuels the island's largest revenue source, tourism. Princess Juliana International Airport -- which will open a major new terminal in mid-2006 -- is famous for its short landing strip —only 2,130 metres/7,000 ft, which is barely enough for heavy jets. Because of this, the planes approach the island flying extremely low, right over the beach. Countless photos of large jets flying at 10–20 m/30-60 ft over relaxing tourists at the beach have been dismissed as photoshopped many times, but are nevertheless real.
