Have you ever wonder how would Kai Tak and Surrounding area looks like if the airport is still in active opeartion, if you do,
click on the above link and see what you can do with a point and shoot camera and a 1:200 Model a/c. Very interesting shots created by Albert (I don't know him). Maybe I should do sth like that too with my A380.
Hope you guys enjoy

Hong Kong is not China. Not better or worse, just different.

Very cute and creative, and of course realistic, however all those landing aircraft have no flaps down so that would be the only give away, had to look at it for a while to figure out what was missing from the picture, Great shots though.

That was pretty cool. I wish I could read Chinese, but I get the gist of the pix, I think. One of the frames had him holding a model of an aircraft on a stick. Some of those aircraft did look like pretty detailed models. Correct me if I'm wrong? Albert where are you? Can you back me up on this funny play of pictures?

I am glad I was able to see some of those view back in the day on vacation over there from Monkok, though most of the planes I saw going over in those days were assorted 742-3 and some L-1011 Cathays in '88. Remember a big purple Luftansa(?) Cargo plane at the end of the runway back '83 after an apparent aborted takeoff. At that time I had heard it was overloaded and they broke the nose gear bringing it to a stop before going in the water...They Had a help of a time getting the cargo out and all planes had to take off towards the mountains. I was young but you never forget Kai-tak, especially that mountain approach.
