There was NOTHING like flying into kai tak in a cathay A330. It was like the climax of flying. I love kai tak and miss it so, and beijing should re-open it. I want to see buildings fly passed winglets like they are about to make contact, and steep turns over lion rock, and just breath Hong Kong as you come in.
I was in hevean. Chap Lap Kok just don't do it for me.
How cares about the people who live below. In hong kong, i think the noise might have actually done them a favour. Real estate prices are so high in Hong Kong, the areas worst affected by the flight path may have ment people could afford appartments to live in that otherwise couldn't. So, some good comes out of it.
I know it scared a lot of people flying in though. I still remember my mother clinging onto that airbus seat, and closing her eyes looking very tense.
Does anybody know what is happaning to the Kai tak sight?
