Many times.  In fact, I am in a YT video landing at St Maarten.  :)  You don't actually need to be that low over the beach.  Most often, pilots do it for the beach crowd.  It isn't a critically short runway. 

Awesome. How about the blow me over, take offs?

Have you ever landed in Saba?  I went in there in a twin otter I think.  It was a fun approach

Was this you?  When I was stationed down there I used to be able to watch the practice from the top of my houseboat every wens morning when they were in town

Kai Tak must have been a hoot before it closed. Fly towards the checker board, make a sharp right with seconds to line up, skim some roof tops just for fun, then jab it down to the runway before running into the bay. :frantics:

BTDT.  Kai Tak was actually fun for competent pilots.  Less fun in monsoon rains though. :)
