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!

Every day airshow. The pilots look like a earlier airforce pilot.

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?

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Sun February 26, 2006:
Still wondering about how did the pilots perform the landing...
I do miss Kai Tak, even though nearly 8 years had passed...

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...
