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.

That last pic looks like it was about to crash into the city! Big grin

Some pretty good camera trickery there, and the models do look kind of realistic!

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?

Lets see what the A380 would look like if it was still open.

Wonder what type of looks he got when he was taking those photos, especially since he was standing in the middle of the road!  Wink (Look at the CX A330 shot just above the first Oasis shot.)

Seeing these photos make me sad. Even though the new HKG airport is excellent, the old airport was a classic... too bad I was too young to enjoy it back then  Sad

I would have loved to see some videos of the A340-600 and B777-33ER's landing at Kai tak. It would have been an excellent view.

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.  weeping

and B777-33ER's landing at Kai tak

that shouldn't be too hard... just find a pic of the 773A landing there, and try to imagine it didn't have those inferior Rollers--- and presto: 773ER  Smile
