The most exciting moment of the day - the arrival of this absolutely rare visitor, a Douglas DC-8F built in 1970. This African International Airways' DC-8F is now wet-leased by Air Mauritius during the suspension of the passenger flight due to the SARS. It arrived from Mauritius as flight MK5640 at local time 1230. We were all excited to see a DC-8 in Hong Kong, as we hadn't seen any DC-8 for a few years, thanks to the strict rules here. This photo is my first one of a DC-8 in fact.
