Bet you got just a little worried when you took those photos.

Thanks 949, When are you going to CLK again ???

Gkirk, Well not worried but interested !!. You got to see these kind of landings at Kai Tak every few months (without the engine strike). I have others but I have no idea of the dates. I may post them later.

Thanks

Exellent picture. Just wondering, did you try to upload the picture as soon as you could, or did you work on it to make the quality better?

Again, a really good pic.

Regards

My friend that scanned it for me just made it a little lighter as it was taken on a rather overcast day. No major reworking !!

This photo (top) mad the front page of the Hong Kong Standard the day after.

Well, the reason i mentioned worried was that, its not everyday you see an engine strike, and there was a possibility of a crash.

What happend to the plane? Why did the engine hit the runway? Seems hard to imagine that this sort of a thing was common.

Flybulldog,

Bad approach !!, Thats what could happen to you at Kai Tak. The aircraft spent three days in HKG while they changed the pylon and engine.

Wasn't there enough runway left to complete the landing?

Is this the runway so famous for terrible crosswinds for landing?

I was also there that day when it happened. Basically, there was a rather strong crosswind blowing on that particular day.

As the aircraft made the final 47 degree right turn to line up with rwy. 13, it veered significantly to the left of the normal approach path. As the pilot tried to correct his heading, he overdid it and swung WAAAAAAY to the right of the runway centerline (note that the aircraft was already over the runway by now). The jumbo then went into a rather steep left bank with a slightly nose-down attitude as the pilot tried to re-correct his heading and to kill off excess altitude. The aircraft lost altitude rather quickly, and before the wings could be leveled, the No. 1 engine had struck the runway surface (look closely at the top picture -- the left ailerons were all the way down while the right ailerons and spoilers were fully up). The plane then bounced right back into the air and sort-of drifted down the runway at an altitude of approx. 40-50 feet for a couple more seconds before it finally did a go-around. By now, flames can be seen coming out of engine no. 1.

Over the radio, the pilot announced that the damaged engine had to be shut down. About 20 minutes after the first failed attempt, the plane returned for its second try. Believe it or not, it practically repeated its moves from the first attempt, but thankfully this time, it touchdown without slamming another engine on the runway or worse.

Another classic case of failing to do a go-around when one should have!! I heard a rumor that the pilot either got demoted or sacked after this little episode.

OK, so now I am wondering which of you if any I've seen in person - great photos btw Hkgspotter! I lived in HK for 22 years, and used to go to the airport regularly - I wasn't a plane spotter per se, just loved watching them take off and land... Wish I'd seen your photo in the Standard at the time, but I was an SCMP man myself.  

Cheers

WHAT!!

Who ever said we wanted to see someone get killed? I know I certainly don't. Hkgspotter1 just happened to be there as it happened. And I doubt it he is taking pictures because he wants to get a pic of a plane chrashing. So don't you come here accusing us of alot of BS.

Galaxy5,

Did anyone mentioned anything about wanting to see a crash? Did anyone said anything about wanting to see someone getting hurt or killed? Does being at the right place at the right time and just happened to capture the incident on film makes anyone a sick bastard? Nobody mentioned anything like that except you yourself. Now who is the REAL sicko in need of a life??    

The publishing of these pictures just might contribute to aviation safety, as it serves as a reminder to pilots and wannabes about what could happen if one forces a landing from a screwed-up approach.

Exactly, no one want to see a crash or pax die here. It's just that you think so. Spotting pics like these doesn't make a spotter a bastards.
