Skiathos Airport, or as I call it “the european St. Martin” is one of the craziest airports in europe. You are able to watch the airplanes land and depart right behind the runway and some people underestimate the power of a jetblast. The Boeing 717 of Volotea pushed a women in the ocean and I hope the phone is still working. I just noticed that nothing happened to them and both of them were fine after the incident.
We visited Skiathos for the third time in three years cause it` s a beautiful place in greece with spectacular approaches. I don`t know many places where you can get that close to the runway. On sunny days up to 100 people show up behind the runway to watch the planes fly low over the beach.
The biggest plane which is allowed to land at Skiathos is a Boeing 757 because the runway only has a lenghts of 1628 meters (5600ft). I already consider the B757 as a “heavy plane” and that` s why it` s always an impressive sight to watch the Boeing 757 land and depart at this small airstrip in greece.
Thanks for watching, I hope you liked my Skiathos compilation from 2018 and there will be a few more videos from this beautiful island in greece
