I have JustPlanes' video "Kai Tak, the Last Day"... and love it!  Love

Does anyone have any other videos featuring Kai Tak? Didnt JustPlanes actually have a series? I'm very interested in attaining such videos, so if anyone has advice or can help... please email, IM, or leave a message for me here. Thanks!

I have Kai Tak Part 2 (I think) Its the purple box. It is 90% from the observation area there, with loads of landings, and take offs from behinde the plane. It is cool, but I LOVE take offs, and there are only 2 take offs from a head of the plane (a 747SP KAL and a 742 Evergreen) Both awesome.

Who/what is Well?



AA61,
nice. Do you know if anyone/place is selling them? Or how/where I could acquire a copy of this video?

I know Just Planes stop selling them  Pissed I would guess some Airplane Hobby shops would sell them. There are a ton of them listed in the back of Airways magazine if that helps any. If you do find a shop that sells them, let me know I am interested in acquiring a NRT video.

Got the "Last Day at Kai Tak" video, though the quiality os a bit so-so. I like the shots from the departures hall, though. A shame that the landing was on rwy 31 instead of 13 - does anyone know/care to guess where the flight was coming from?

I also have the "Last Look at Kai Tak '98" which is way better in quality, and the sheet with registrations etc. is nice to have. A bit annoying that the landing on the VS A340 was from 2 different aircrafts. I felt that it kind of ruined the whole point.

"Goodbye Kai Tak" video is offered by Air Utopia at www.airutopia.com if you want more action.

I have it - bought it in HK - the angles are great - from the deck - famous window seat approach - opposite side views from several locations AND views from the checkerboard.

this video is excellent by the way... i think i have placed a post before about this subject... or it may have been about the St. Maarten video they have (I have only 3 of their videos commercially - but like all 3)

Good luck.

That landing is from a Cathay 747-400 arriving from FRA.
Very disappointed that rwy 31 was in use....  Angry

Okay, I guess that particular flight arrived as one of the first on the day, which was why 31 was used.

Soundtrack...you better be right because I bought Goodbye Kai Tak a couple days ago. Smile/happy/getting dizzy I'm looking forward to seeing it because I've only seen pictures of the checkerboard approach(many of them at that).

Hey ConcordeBoy,

if you go over to www.A340.net there is one clip from the cockpit. It is really cool to watch.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Anyways, I believe that justplanes.com should have more videos.

Cheers,

Here, kids of airport action, is your key to Kai Tak video products. I like all of these, with a special fondness towards Just Planes products (and Avion's as well).

Just Planes is selling only DVDs now (direct from its website that is).

These sites DO have some VHS airport titles (no Kai Tak though), some for big fat discounts (no doubt they're trying to get all the VHS stuff off the shelves). ..........

http://www.airplaneshop.com

http://www.airlinersonline.com


I did find several on-line sources that DO still have some Kai Tak programs for sale. Better get 'em before they're discontinued! .........

http://www.aviation-worldwide.com/products/videos_airport.html

http://airutopia.com/index2.html

http://www.avionvideo.com/




Just Planes has (had) 5 total Kai Tak programs: International Numbers 2, 14, 15, and 29. Plus, the "Final Day" video. I can't find anyplace selling any of these at the present time, however.  Sad





You might try the link below as well. "Flying Pig Videos" has a pretty nice 2-part Kai Tak, which features ATC on the tapes too. Colors are a bit muted, but still, it's Kai Tak, so it can't be TOO bad!  Smile .......

http://airportworld.com/videos.htm



Good Luck!
Let us know if you're successful in finding some!
And if anybody out there knows of any other Kai Tak programs (or other airport videos in general), please post them here. Thanks.

Has anybody ever purchased any products (few though they might be in selection) from this outfit? ............

http://airliners-interactive.com/

I did get 1 item from them many moons ago, but had to return it because it refused to play. (It wasn't a DVD, but a DVD-ROM only, even though they claim it would play in free-standing DVD Players.)  Sad

Just wondered if anybody else had the same difficulty with this organization?

Greetings everyone...

GREAT JOB LAX!! Those covers look Good.

AA727.... Let me know what you think? I personally liked it because of the captions and history and brief narration which came with it. I like to learn a little - and not only watch.

Several of my buddies also liked "Goodbye Kai Tak" as well - the only thing we felt was we wished it was longer - so perhaps a good criticism.

Several things to note in the Airutopia.com 'Goodbye Kai Tak' video:

2 planes aborting (EVA and a Vietnam)
Continental Micronesia 747
Checkerboard view is EXCELLENT with ATC!
Some night shots including a Thai 747-2 Cargo briefly (never seen that before)

Pay attention to ATC warning departing planes of incoming ship in the harbor (very unique)... ship is seen later.
Pay attention to NW plane and chinese workers mowing the grass - is this allowed... the pilots must of thought this was crazy!?!

I have seen Avion and Harry's also - good also.

Airports of the world I thought was sloppy - but that is only my opinion.

JP is good also - except the "Last Day" was a bit soso due to the constant shaking.

peace-

I have that "Wings Over HK" VHS, Soundtrack. Been a while since I watched it though. But, as I recall, I liked it.

BTW, its complete title is ... "A TRIBUTE TO KAI TAK -- WINGS OVER HONG KONG -- AN AVIATION HISTORY - 1891-1998".

(The video is approximately 60 minutes in length.)

It was a great video Soundtrack, so thank you for the info! I noticed the Thai 742 and was a bit shocked, didn't know they existed. After reading your post, I noticed the guys mowing and busted out laughing!  Smile But, it IS a great video and I recommend it to anyone!

AA727 - I was laughing also... that is IMPOSSIBLE or a NO NO at any airport - people mowing lawns at the takeoff point of a runway. What the #$#%! And they were chilling out - if you note carefully, some of those Chinese (with the famous hats) were sort of relaxing like it's an everyday thing. It had to be a mistake - bc i am sure normally they will do this during off hours - not during peak time of takeoffs. The NW pilots must have really thought that this was crazy - and I almost noticed the NW plane taking off on the right of the center hashmark to maybe avoid the mowers?? Take a look!

I used to work at an airport - and was yelled out years ago when I got within 50 yds of a turbofan on (foreman didn't want me being sucked into the engines!). Needless to say - this is classic - they mention also in ATC by the way if you listen.

That reminds of something else - they have a St. Maarten video which is also very good - in this video - you will hear ATC saying "We have a caution - there are some DOGS on the runway threshold..." Next shot are dogs being chased off the runway by airport authority - also hilarious.

AAheavy...
What do you mean by Kai Tak with Takeoffs? Plse rephrase clearer. All these videos listed above have landings and takeoffs - I think the only one I recall that has a takeoff from inside the plane window seat view departing HK is the 'Goodbye Kai Tak' video which we have been discussing.

I think ITVV - Intelligent video has an actual Kai Tak takeoff from the cockpit - but have forgotten.

Peace everyone!

AA61hvy.....

I've just checked my Harry's programs. And have discovered 1 "Harry's Pilot's Point-Of-View" video (Volume #1) that has 1 Kai Tak Runway 13 take-off sequence on it (with a fixed camera mount). It's a fairly lengthy sequence too (over 12 minutes). That same Vol. 1 also has a Runway 13 Landing chapter. Both take-off and landing are from fixed cameras aboard a Boeing 747-400 (Lufthansa probably).

Also: Harry's "Pilot's POV" Volume 2 has 1 Kai Tak Landing on it. (On B744). Good luck in finding anyplace that has these for sale, however. I can find zero. But, maybe some European places still have them.

And: Harry's has an "Aviation Special" VHS video called "Hong Kong--Checkerboard Approach" that features a landing on Runway 13 (from a NON-fixed camera in the cockpit of a 744). The only on-line location I think you can still buy this is .... http://aviation-worldwide.com/products/0360.html .

Hope this info proves helpful to you.  Smile

About Harry's,

I've been told they have good airport videos... but, their cockpit productions from those watching it don't capture the effects well during landings and are robotic.

I HAVE NOT WATCHED THEM... three of my friends who did watch it told me they did not like them (unanimous) to my surprise! They mentioned this:

1. stationary camera - does not capture the feel of the runway approaching.
2. Boring - not enough panning or dialogue.

But, again - I have not watched them. Their airport video in general were better then JP. But Harry's has seemed to have stopped producing - there has not been a releast in 4 yrs? (anyone out there know)

peace

Hi SOUNDTRACK........

Yes, some of the "Harry's" programs are kind of "robotic", indeed. (With stationary/fixed camera mounting.) This type I mentioned in my post (above), they're the "Pilot's POV" programs (with the fixed camera out the cockpit window; no panning at all). But, hey, at least it's steady, with no "jumps" and jerks upon landing!  Smile

The Harry's "Cockpit Flight" videos are NOT fixed cameras. They have some panning around on those.

The boredom factor will vary from person to person. (But, Hey, let's face it. There just ARE NOT 175 different ways to show planes landing and taking off! Even from the cockpit! Once you've seen about 5 or 6 of these (with varying differences), you've pretty much run the gamut of the possibilities.) -- Until that day comes when the Boston, Massachusetts, producer of "Just Planes Videos, Inc." (who, btw, is a great guy!) decides to put a cameraman on the outside of that American Trans Air Boeing 757-300 and shoot some spectacular "wing-walking" aerial footage as it lands at LAS in Las Vegas (at night)! I've been trying to talk him into this kind of footage. But, for some reason, he just REFUSES to risk the lives of just a couple of photographers in order to provide we video junkies with something different! Heck!  Smile Smile (LOL!)

Anyway....  Smile ... I agree that the Harry's airport videos are really quite nice, as you eluded to above, S'Track. The editing is top-notch, because they nearly always utilize the preferred (by me anyway) "fade-in, fade-out" type of editing for each shot. As opposed to the quick cut-offs.

However, it'd be hard to beat the newer Just Planes Airport programs on DVD! The Digital DVD programs are great IMO. Esp. LAX and LHR, which feature nice LOUD stereo sound for window-rattling airport excitement if you've got a decent sound system! Very nice! (Crank it up and you'll think you're on the apron @ LHR!)

Which videos/DVDs do you currently have, Soundtrack?

Another VHS I'd get (if you can find it in some lost corner of the Earth) is: Just Planes' Special "Airbus Vol. 1" (there will be no #2 I'm told). But Vol. 1 has great sound & shows Toulouse "touch-&-go" footage for many Airbus widebodies on test flights. A nice video.
