PRINCESS JULIANA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, SAINT MAARTEN
At 7,150 feet this runway is longer than some on our list, but is dangerous because of the large aircraft (that need 8-10 thousand feet to land safely) now frequenting the island. Tourists are often seen plane spotting despite repeated warnings.
