Spending the greater part of two years on a Caribbean beach doesn't sound like hard work. But the calculus changes when hulking commercial jets skim just 15ft over your head every day.
That's exactly what Austrian photographers Josef Hoflehner and Jakob Hoflehner had to contend with between 2009 and 2011, when they set out to capture planes landing at Saint Martin's Princess Juliana International Airport. The airport's landing strips are in such close proximity to the beach that planes returning to Earth whoosh dangerously close to sunbathers, and appear to barely miss them.
The result of the Hoflehners' project, the "Jet Airliner" series, includes 86 nerve-racking images of aircraft landing far too close for a relaxing day by the sea.
