Was there any G.A. at Kia Tak? I remember a photo some where of a 172 and I think it was at Kia Tak. There were lots of Cathy Pacific planes thier.\

I haven't been there since the 70s and at that time there was little or no GA activity. Almost all the light traffic was Army: Scout and Sioux helicopters, DHC Beaver. They flew all over the colony but I doubt they used Kai Tak much. They were based 'over the hill' in Sek Kong. I lived part way up the hill and had a great view of the airstrip.

There was a small amount of G.A at Kai Tak but normally it was not allowed to land due to the constraints that the airport had.
