I took this one yesterday. Quite an approach to say the least. Does anyone know which runway this was?

You just can't beat the sound of those GE engines. A thing of beauty.

To me it looks like you landed on 8L. The taxiway towards the end of the video appears to be RB that leads out to 8R

Sure was. Nice vid. I usually try to sit on the port side to catch a glimpse of Pearl Harbor and Central Oahu.

I'll argue til I'm blue in the face that the sitting on the starboard side of an aircraft on approach to 26L is one of the best seats in the sky.

Yes, that landing was on 8L. For widebody aircraft (unless it is late at night or Kona winds are blowing) almost all landings are made on 8L. Very occasionally we'll land on 4R if the winds are blowing that way, or if there's a lot of traffic in the area requiring two runways to be used simultaneously. 4R is also the normal runway for late night/early morning arrivals. I haven't yet seen anyone land on the reef runway (8R) in normal conditions. However in the winter it is common to do the approach to the reef runway the other direction (26L, the one 777fan likes so much).


One smooth landing is skill. Two in a row is luck. Three in a row and someone is lying.

It looks like it did, although it is hard to see.
