Last Airplane To Take-off From Kai Tak?

Tue Feb 13, 2007 10:19 am

After looking at this picture, http://www.airliners.net/open.file/1173731/L/, I was wondering what was the absolutely last aircraft to take off from Kai Tak before it's closure? Was it some local civil aircraft? Was it a widebody flown by a major carrier? Was it a jet just there for maintenance which was the last one finished up? Thanks for your help.

Accorfding to the following thread from 2004, the last departure from Kai Tak was a CX A340-300 being ferried to the new airport, flight CX3340, and the last arrival was a Dragonair A320, flight KA841 from CKG.
