C-FGHZ / 385 (cn 27827/1038) HOT & HIGH!!! This plane is coming in higher and faster than normal. Note the left ailerons and flight spoilers in the full-up position as the pilot attempt to level-off quickly.

That's what we call HK Heart Attack. But i'm sorry to say, she's on the process of scrapping.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon January 30, 2012:
You know, frankly I hardly mind about what exactly is going on with the spoilers and ailerons and other control surfaces more than the obvious: what an epic awesome photo! Some Hong Kong governor should for the next elections include reopening of Kai Tak in his program, I bet you he's gonna make millions in donations!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 15, 2011:
Actually, looking at the position of the rudder, it seems they are leveling out the turn. look at the starboard aileron in down position as well...keep in mind this is an aggressive, precise turn.

A visitor from United States posted Sun February 13, 2011:
The left flight spoilers are actually spoilerons and they're in the up position because they are designed to assist the aircraft in turns.

A visitor from Venezuela posted Wed December 22, 2010:
Awesome picture!!!

A visitor from Australia posted Sat July 31, 2010:
I Miss Flying To Hong Kong....Very Challenging yet Enjoyable Approach

A visitor from Mexico posted Sat June 26, 2010:
Is that a 747 or a big eagle?

A visitor from Canada posted Wed March 10, 2010:
CP7 Heavy. Nice.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri October 31, 2008:
I miss that airport too. It was dangerous but it was a challenge for the pilots…

A visitor from Germany posted Tue August 26, 2008:
A great photo

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 18, 2008:
I miss that older airport. Sad to see it go.

A visitor from - posted Fri July 13, 2007:
Great picture. The photographer caught the picture at the perfect time.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat May 12, 2007:
Another awe inspiring photo from Kak Tai. The plane is perfectly framed with the buildings in the background. Well done.

A visitor from Colombia posted Sun August 6, 2006:
Great Pic. Preobabl passenger are afraid

A visitor from Venezuela posted Sat August 5, 2006:
Way to gooooooooooooooo!!

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 8, 2006:
Great angle as the plane lands in hong kong

A visitor from Canada posted Mon March 20, 2006:
This pic embodies the excitement of landing at Kai Tak. It was never routine always some variable to make each landing something to remember. Les Temps Perdu.

A visitor from Spain posted Thu February 23, 2006:
I love this picture!!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon February 6, 2006:
OMG!!!!!!!!!! That should be photo number one on airliners!! G-R-E-A-T work Gordon!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 21, 2006:
WOW-Just Wow thats all I can say!!!!

A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 11, 2005:
It is so hard to fly such a hard leaning in such a low altitude...

A visitor from Canada posted Sat October 29, 2005:
Amazing shot :)

A visitor from Canada posted Sat October 8, 2005:
It is a clear picture of an amazing aircraft of a once wonderful airline.

A visitor from United States posted Fri September 23, 2005:
I had the pleasure (i think ) of making this approach at night before Kai Tak closed. As I was looking out the window I couldn't believe what I was seeing.
This is a very good shot of what went on.
