Landing In Kai Tak Seen From The Cockpit, Where?

Fri Aug 15, 2003 10:14 pm

Hello everyone,

Looking at the most viewed pictures in the database, I see a lot of really wild Kai Tak pictures. But I don't see any landingshots taken from the cockpit.

I checked the whole database and I could only find one photo:

So, my questions are?

Was it so difficult to get cockpitacces during this appraoch?
Aren't there any of the famous Anet photographers who have pictures like this?

Would a picture like  Wow! that do well on Anet?


greetz, Eric

Thanks again to the super-friendly Dragonair crew, they *invited* me to the cockpit, I didn't even ask!

PS: sorry, but he asked for the plugs  Big grin

The book-Giant Jetliners, by Guy Norris and Mark Wagner-has a great picture of an All Nippon 767 on the turn from the cockpit. It is on the back cover. I would scan it and post it, but I don't know if I can.
