When night is coming.QR817 is ready going back to Doha.Also from this picture we could see Qatar airways using Cathay's catering service.I really like planes with city buildings as a background.So I just covered my lens on the glass of the terminal and 25sec exposure of handheld to get this beautiful shot,as a gift for my first spotting in Hong Kong with Mikey.

Wow. The buildings in the background give it an almost un-worldly sci-fi feel! Sure makes me want to visit.

Amazing picture. Lots of detail, and those numbers on the ground. I did notice that for the first time - great.

Five golden stars for the longest passenger aircraft in the world..(the A340-600 was the longest passenger aircraft until the B747-8 came along)

Nice photo, interesting to see that the L1011 is still covered on the ramp markers, I'm guessing left over from Cathay's retirement program.

Look on the markings on the floor about which aircraft has to park at which point!!!
