I have seen buzzing the ATC, but **mooning** them?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu August 26, 2010:
Great capture,crosswinds indeed.

A visitor from - posted Tue July 13, 2010:
If this wasn't a crosswind landing, this pilot was way off!

A visitor from Turkmenistan posted Mon May 3, 2010:
Good pic

A visitor from - posted Sat April 3, 2010:
A familiar sight for inexperienced "armchair Captains".
To the chap below, DH was 660ft, which should be at the middle marker. At this point if the runway is not in sight you execute a missed approach, but you can still go around for reasons other than vis.: in the case of Kai Tak this means not being able to put the thing down!

A visitor from Germany posted Mon March 15, 2010:
Nice and "rare" shot.
Hopefully you have now a better camera :P

A visitor from - posted Wed March 3, 2010:
Great pic. unfortunate for the quality but it gives historical facts ^^
what's the desision hight for kai tak ? 50ft ? ^^

A visitor from United States posted Tue December 29, 2009:
Real men don't go around!

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 21, 2009:
Lucky them to fly 747. It can handle such a rough

A visitor from Jamaica posted Wed September 10, 2008:
A go around would be great, But it's a nice shot.

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 15, 2008:
Ooops, wrong way!

A visitor from - posted Thu April 10, 2008:

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 3, 2008:
I think he should go up and try his approach again, or risk landing in the water. Awesome shot.

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 29, 2008:
Pull up and try it all over again. Don't risk bending the airplane.

A visitor from Spain posted Tue September 4, 2007:
This photo is amazing! It would be very difficult to find something similar.

A visitor from Iceland posted Fri February 16, 2007:
I recon he's just about to give some left rudder and have a fairly smooth landing :)

A visitor from Antigua And Barbuda posted Sat November 11, 2006:
This is one of those Kai Tak photos that gets my heart beat racing just looking at it!

A visitor from Canada posted Tue August 1, 2006:
It is spectacular to see a plane like that in this position with probably a right wind

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 23, 2006:
Co-pilot to Captain: "What do you mean, you've only got a PPL ?!!"

A visitor from Turkey posted Wed June 14, 2006:
It's most serious crosswind i've ever seen!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed March 8, 2006:
Make sure to bring an extra pair on underwear for this flight

A visitor from Spain posted Wed January 25, 2006:

A visitor from Colombia posted Tue January 17, 2006:

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri January 6, 2006:

Kai Tak claims another pair of underpants...

What would the decision altitude have been I wonder? Probably committed to the landing and too late to go around.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Unusual position of the plane such close to the ground.

A visitor from Germany posted Sun December 25, 2005:
If I were the Pilot i'd do a GA (Go-Around)

A visitor from Turkey posted Mon December 19, 2005:

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat November 19, 2005:

That is a nice photo.... and angle....

A visitor from United States posted Wed September 7, 2005:
No no no. you land on the runway. not the grass or water

A visitor from Germany posted Sun August 21, 2005:
Great composition, excellent light and colours, not too much sharpness (dynamic!) - and of course a spectacular moment!
