A Hong Kong Air Bell47J sight-seeing helicopter (with floats) parked at Hong Kong Harbour. Photo taken with newly acquired Pentax Spotmatic F camera. I couldn't go for a scenic flight around Hong Kong, because two Lufthansa B747 pilots had hired the helicopter for the afternoon, so they could practice the curved over-land approach to Kai Tak's Rwy 13 (in slow motion!) Were they the Pilots of B747-130 D-ABYB who brought me to Hong Kong the previous day? (D-ABYB was the first civil Boeing 747 to crash!)
