Remark Photographer
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.

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.

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

A visitor from Indonesia posted Mon November 9, 2009:
It's just tear-making to see the fate of the airport being demolished :((((

A visitor from Monaco posted Wed October 22, 2008:
Sad to say that we're getting rid of this airport

I find it sad what they done with Kai Tak. Never been there :(. Sad to see what they have done with the airport. Kai Tak will be ever in our hearts.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 14, 2007:
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!

Once the most beautiful airport in the world. And now a big building lot. Sad to see...Nice picture!
