Since Saba boasts the worlds shortest commercial runway, I was so excited to experience this mini 12 minute adventure. The morning of, I packed my bags, hopped in a taxi, then prepared to taxi the runway for takeoff. When I checked in, the airport felt like a ghost town (note to Caribbean travelers-8 am on a Sunday in the offseason is an easy breezy travel time). After I made my way to the gate with my boarding pass, I was informed I was the only passenger on the flight. I had an entire plane to myself and I was going to land on the worlds shortest runway. For filming, this could not have been better news!
Turns out the flight was more graceful and beautiful like rather than scary or nerve wracking. My Winairflight was unbelievably smooth and only a short twelve minutes from takeoff to landing. With not much room for error, I can only imagine how skilled and precise the pilots must maneuver the aircraft on a windy day to make an A+ landing.
