Kai Tak, no question.

Especially considering the poor facilities available for spotters at the new HK airport.

What a question! The answer is so clear as if you asked "Whats the most-liked airliner?"

Do I need to say more?

I agree with you Na but I still have to voice my opinion.

The greatest is Meigs field in Chicago (sort of closed and open at the same time). Where else can you land a Cessna on a virtual Aircraft carrier with a super strong cross wind? Plus great view of the city and lots of cool aircraft (if your into general aviation).

Don't y'all forget Paya Lebar Airport. If it were to be still operational today, it will be one of the most spectacular sight you will ever see. Different from Kai Tak. Believe me.

Hmmm

Even though I have never been to Kai Tak, I would have loved to see it open so that I could actually experience the approach myself.

Apart from that I found Oslo Fornebu airport quite charming, though it was congested and a psychedelic labyrint of new and old terminal buildings.

RCSS-Taipei SungShan airport. This used to be the main international airport for TPE. But when RCTP opened, all international traffic moved with it.

However, in some rare occasion, there are aircraft such as MD-11 and 747-SP does use the airport.

2 years ago, a china airlines MD-11 was diverted to RCSS due to fog at RCTP.

There is a street right at the runway threshold. You are about 200-300ft away from the aircraft. Also, you can stand right under the path.

I'll go along with the majority, and say Kai Tak for international airport, and Denver-Stapleton for US.
