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

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!

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.

The left flight spoilers are actually spoilerons and they're in the up position because they are designed to assist the aircraft in turns.

Great angle as the plane lands in hong kong

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.

It is a clear picture of an amazing aircraft of a once wonderful airline.

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.
