Good, concorde in former Hong Kong airport!!
Most impressive aircraft of all time,
if it hadn't existed, there would be 80% less aviation fans in the world, too bad there is no successor.

The most beautiful airliner ever buit ... Concorde belongs to the past now, just like Kai Tak airport, but the myth is still alive, and for long time, in our memory. So long White Swan ...

This is beauty in simplicity. A picture of an amazing airplane and a historic approach, one that will not be repeated.

The attitude during approach is breathtaking! What purpose does the "checker board" serve?

Never to be repeated again, indeed. I wish I was alive at the time, as I wasn't born until just a few years later. This is just as beautiful as the picture of Earth from the Moon. Historical, beautiful and captivating.

Awesome flying machine, hope the next firm able to produce a SST won't get boycotted as the concorde was at birth. So we might enjoy views of spectacular planes more often.

What a beautiful picture. It is so simple, but has many wonderful elements. First, of course, is the plane, and then the checkerboard, and also the thought of the Concorde flying on such a historic approach. Like many of the best pictures it hits the minds of those who understand it, and wish we were there.

Truly spectacular.. and I say that with all the enthusiasm I can gather. It brings two, such loved and iconic elements which have now been lost to history, back to life and into a single portrait. Wonderful. Can't get my head round it, truly magical.

The plane is captured in a fantastic position, also the persepctive is very unusual and the red-white chceck gives everything that little taste.

A magic plane, taken in a superb position from a great angle, in an unusual setting. HPM, France

The place I always wanted to be and never will. At least I got to see the Concorde live somewhere else. Great shot of two aviation history makers, the Concorde and Kai Tak. Love this picture!
