Welcome to A.net, Monorail!
I flew over my house in Holland with a Cessna 172 and took pictures.
And here in Spain I overflew my house lots of times on departures from runway 30 from Valencia Manises (LEVC/VLC), flying to Bilbao or Barcelona. I live 25km northwest from the airport.

I live on the outskirts of Plymouth by the airport, so I have flown over my house several times in DHC8's, I quite often see members of my family driving back down my road having dropped me off at the terminal. Few weeks ago I flew over again, this time in a Cessna 152 and circled to take photos, they didn't come out to well as it was my old camera, but it was fun al the same

The area I live in is so heavily wooded that I doubt I'd be able to see anything except for the tops of trees. I do see planes headed to EWR pass over my house once in a while, but I don't think I could recognize my own while in the air.

I used to live right under the final approach to 21L at JNB, in fact the runway lights were installed in open ground right next to my house. Had landing lights shining in the windows many nights, and yes I flew over it many times too.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

I've probably flown over my house many of times, I just didn't know which one it was. I live in Thomasville, GA, about 40 miles south of Albany, so when we begin app. into TLH, we probably pass over it. I also hear CRJ's and 738's flying over. The one definite time I flew over it is when my friend's dad took me up in the rented 172 and let me fly for most of an hour. I flew over it so that if you looked through the belly you could see my house. It was great!(Also, on that flight I entered the left traffic pattern at TVI and brought it down to within 50 Ft. of the runway.)

DAL7e7 is wondering... Do pilots take crash courses?

Lots of times. In fact, a lot of people on here have. Take a flight from LHR, depart on a westerly runway and keep going pretty straight. Give it about 10 mins.... Many of the US flights go right over.
Mine is the house on the end with the blue car on the drive and the funny-shaped garden. Look out for the old farm house with the pool and we are just by that.

When I used to live in Paris I once flew into CDG after making a turn over the north of the city. I was coming from STR on an LH flight in a Fokker 50 and it was such a beautiful day you could make out every detail of Paris. I actually saw my balcony, as I live right north and on the last floor of an old building.

I havent flown DIRECTLY over my house, but in 1998 i was onboard SQ328 (?)Manchester - Singapore. We took off from runway 24 and although i didnt actually see my house i saw the roads surrounding it and i must say, i wasn't unhappy about leaving it behind!!!

Last October, when I was on FL Flight 510 (PHL-BOS), I was able to get a good view of my mother's house in Marblehead (which is about 18 miles northeast of Boston) as we approached R/W 22L from the north. 4 out of the 6 or 7 pictures I took of my former-hometown show my mother's house.
Where I currently live (in Secane, PA; not too far from PHL) one can only see the apartment complex that I reside at if their flight is either taking off from R/W 35 or approaching R/W 17 for a landing. At present, all the flights I've taken to/from PHL have been on 9L-27R or 9R-27L.

Every single time I fly from BOM! I live almost directly under the take-off flight path. All I have to do is wait until the beach comes into view, look for a big hotel with a big pool and I'm quickly able to locate my building!

I'm not really sure about my house, but as for my town, several times. I've seen my old Middle School from 3,000 & 30,000 ft in fact. I was in a Fokker 100 the latter of the times & got a great view of my town- it was really cool.
