This photo reminded me of a question I have been wondering about for a long time.

How do you get shots from this angle? It's obviously landing on 25R looking towards the terminal and the mountains in the background. That would mean taking it from the sea right? Is it a case of having to hire a boat to get it?

I heard some spotters at HKG rent a fishing boat, then go to HKG and anchored close to 25R and shoot from there. I guess that is how this picture and many similar ones from.

Sounds logical.

Sadly I guess it's pretty impossible to do unless you speak Cantonese.

HKG spotters are friendly people who can be found on the Internet.
My Turkish spotter buddies went there and just contacted the HK spotters and met up.
Maybe you can join them next time they do this?
