Default Landings at St. Barts - 7 commuter airplanes

If you generally admire a good landing here’s a short 4-minute rapid fire video of seven full-scale landings into St. Barts airport, located on a tiny eastern Caribbean island, Saint Barthélemy. From the direction shown landings are all downhill in the literal sense. There’s a stiff cross wind to boot. Approaches start at the 32 second point. The third approach is by a twin otter and it just doesn’t appear like it wants to come down without a fight. The fifth approach by a Pilatus PC-12 is the most “scary”; taking out road signs, bouncing off a truck top, parting the hill grass and then alighting like a butterfly.

The second 2-minute video is from inside a plane (Twin Otter, I think). You could start at the 1:30 point to speed things up.

This is amusing, maybe for some, on how to get better simulating landings at St. Bart's. 12 minutes long.............

OK, this is how to do it (as shown from a different angle). Yes, occasionally planes go off the end.
