Kai Tak Experience

Mon Jul 30, 2001 4:47 am

When I was in Hong Kong, I shot over to Kai Tak... I was pumped to still see the CheckBoard.. So I asked the driver guy to take me to the runway... i go there and I see a driving range..!! i was upset!! i mean i love golf but that has to be one of the most ironic things i have ever seen.. i did think it was cool when we were on the taxi way, which is now a road, in order to get there. i just missed kai tak by 3 years.. oh yeah is the China Airlines 747-400 that slipped off the runway, still in the water at the bottom or did they get it out?

The 744 got hanged out a few days after the crash. The plane didn't even sink. The water is just too shollow.
