Where can I view the Kai Tak approach plates on the web? I want to see what it looks like and the instructions that the pilots had to follow.

A guy that works for PFD (it deals with flight simulator) was a 747-400 capt. for NWA. He explains the approach here and this includes the plate:

I used to shoot the IGS 13 in Kaitak a lot while flying for my previous employer, all the way to the last day of Kaitak in the TriStar. Best fun I ever had with my pants on! Challenging at times, especially with a right crosswind because it would blow you to the outside of the turn, and you really had to crank the bank to keep it on track!
You would be coming down the ILS like a normal approach, and if memory serves me right, at 675 feet, you would look outside for the checkerboards on the side of a hill infront of you, and make a 45 deegree right turn to line up with Rwy 13, having lead in lights on top of some buildings to guide you in as well. if everything worked out well when you rolled out you would be roughly 100 feet above the ground ready to land! Fun fun fun!
Anyway, great memories!
