Cathay's First A340-600 Just Arrived In Hong Kong

Sat Nov 30, 2002 9:34 pm

Yep, at 6.45pm (30-11-2002) B-HQB arrived in Hong Kong as CX 3330. Shame it was dark but at least I can say I was the only Hong Kong spotter to brave the rain  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Good day Daryl,

If it's possible, can you send to alvin777@pilot.pprune.com ? Thanks, would really love to see it! But of course if it's not causing you any inconvenience!

About time this thread was cleaned up.

Anyway, just exactly what site are you talking about? Because I have the feeling that I'm missing a few Airplane Photography sites.

Alvin,

Trust me you will see pics on this site VERY soon. There are many guys in Hong Kong taking pics.

I can't write the name of the other sites as they will delete my post.

Thank you Hkgspotter1 for the prompt notification. Were you there when the plane arrived? Outside HAECO?

I'm quite curious just simply HOW you would take pictures of the CX A340-600 if it arrived in the dark.

I sure wonder if VS will use the A346 for the LHR-HKG-SYD flying. That'd be great.

It'll more likely be a 744 tho, huh.

I can't be there sunday, well, not all day anyway. Either way I plan to see the VS and the CX 346. We missed it an hour and a bit in HKG the other day.
