Amazing shot... You can't even see the airport, it just looks like its about to land in the city... This shot, mark my words, is going to be very popular and will probably make it into the top of the last 24 hours...

Still wondering about how did the pilots perform the landing...
I do miss Kai Tak, even though nearly 8 years had passed...

Still feels like this pic was taken just yesterday. Never been to Kai Tak...what a feeling it must be looking over the wings from inside. Are there any pics on a.net with such a view?

How I miss Kai Tak, and Hong Kong. Hong Kong is an amazingly diverse place, chinese, indians and a lot of unwanted brits all in one place, with jumbos flying over your head! Long Live Hong Kong!

Dear Simon Wong , I work for British Airways in HK and I’m running a project to celebrate BA’s 80 years of history in HK. We are going to hold an exhibition at the HK Museum of History from 13 Dec – 09 Jan looking at the aviation history of the Hong Kong London route. The exhibition is open to public and is free of charge. I came across your photos online and I am particularly impressed by the old British Asia Airways landing in Kai Tak photos (#1005859). I’m wondering if you would be kind enough to allow us to show those photos in the exhibition? We will acknowledge your copyrights and your contribution should we decide to use it.

I really hope you’re happy to help and please feel free to share with me any other ideas you may have.

Thank you.

Louise Chung
