Hey everyone!!

i just found this video on the net, and when i watched it, it was a little weird because if u watch the whole video,,,the plane nose almost opposite of the runway heading, now i dont think that is a crosswind landing video, because i have seen bad ones!!
just take a look at it....i would love u hear what u guys think

I don't know, Fiaz, what's more difficult. Reading text without capitalization or shooting an IGS approach to RWY 13 at the old Kai Tak airport.

That would have been a really nice video of the approach had the guy filming not screwed up at the end how much he zoomed in! Ah well

As stated already the approach is normal procedure at Kai Tak, Just looks as though they didn't turn in enough to line up properly. If you do a search of photos a Kai Tak you can see it happened a fair few times.

Yes Ricardo, it looks like an Alitalia MD11 to me.

Very easy going Italian crew, even the smoking by the skipper looks just fine !!!

The Italians are really very comfortable people !!!

Best regards

It is a video of an AZ MD11 landing at Kai Tak, I have seen it before on a website, sadly I can't remember it.

The best part of this video is that it's under the category of "Comedy".

Really bad camerawork, btw.

At 02:32 in the video, the captain uses the radio and identifies the flight as "Alitalia 177".

G'day Fiaz  Smile , I think it was a case of bad camera work more then anything else. It did look like they overshot the turn and ended up a bit to the left of the centre-line, but the recovery seemed to be quite good and the landing itself seemed to be very smooth. Must have been the calming effect of that cigarette  bigthumbsup !

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Ahem... let's be nice and not jump all over the camera operator.

It's still something we can enjoy of a time gone by, shaky or not, and was a labor of love.

However, if any of you here has personally filmed a better video of the Kai Tak approach and landing, please do post the website link. Thanks.

Oh, they are.

You'll recognize the old Kai Tak plate if you had looked closely at the video and compared it to the one at the link above.  Smile

That guy shouldn't be allowed to touch a video camera again.. what the hell is he trying to film during touchdown. The guy acts like he has Parkinson's disease or something.
