Rarest aircraft Pics ever taken in Kai Tak/Chek Lap Kok

Fri Oct 06, 2017 11:05 pm

Hi guys, as you know I'm a fan of everything about aviation. I am a Portuguese nationality that is currently living in Hong Kong for several years now on. I have taken lots of photos of various planes whilst leaving HK for vacation. I know that spotting one of the rarest ones in Hong Kong is not easy for me & those of you. So I have found an unidentified photo in the internet of DennisHKG of what it appears to be a PC-3 Orion parked at a ramp in Kai Tak in the early 1990's ( presumably for repairs or storage). Other's I know is French Air Force C-130 visiting Chek Lap Kok in 2011, RAF C-130, USAF C-5 Galaxy, RAAF BBJ 737 & a rumored photo of Air Force 1 visiting Kai Tak for a single day. I can't confirm whether the Air force 1 B747 has visited Kai Tak or not but other photos are exact B707's arriving in the early 1990's. Since Chek Lap Kok opened in 1998, there was twice that a AF Concorde visited there in 2005 but now it's rare picture to capture that bird. Anyone of you can post here one of the most rarest aircraft spotted ever in Hong Kong history( include like RAF bombers or others)
