The Best Place For Plane Spotting At Clk?

Thu Mar 22, 2001 5:59 pm

As you all know, the flight between Hong Kong and JFK will start on 1/4/2001. Right?

I would VERY MUCH love to go and see the take off part. However, unlike Kai Tak, there isn't a good place for Plane Spotting at CLK International Airport.

Can anyone tell me WHERE I can do plane spotting at CLK?  Smile

Spotting ??, as in just watching planes ??, NO PROBLEM.

If they are landing on 07L, just take the bus S52 from Tung Chung (get there via the S1 from the terminal) and get of at the last stop, thats HAECO. Walk back along the road and you can watch the landings and departures.

If 25R you need to go out from the airport hotel, cross the road, turn right then make a left then right and you will see the way. This place is very good for photos.

A month or so ago, there was a very detailed thread on this forum titled "Spotting at HKG" or something like it. Someone posted a very detailed map of the airport island together with indications of the major photo spots.

In other words, give the "search" function a try!
