A sad aerial view of Kai Tak, 8.5 years after its closure. Many facilities used to be there are now gone - The terminal is gone, the traffic control tower is gone, the hangars are gone, part of the runway is gone... just leaving an outline of Kai Tak. The latest development proposal retains the shape of the runway. There will be cruise terminals, a giant stadium, an observation tower, as well as some residential and commercial buildings in future Kai Tak. Good bye, my old friend - Kai Tak.

Hey! What's the crying for? At least it is getting developed and will be occupied. It would be worse that the old structures just sad there, in the middle of a bustling city. Stop crying and let the future come in!

When you take away all the buildings you see how huge the space was that the airport took up.

Gives a great overview of how small the area was on which this busy international airport handled all that widebody traffic. Truely amazing!

Not just a terminal and stands, but as mentioned all the other facilities.
