Ah! The good old days! Kai Tak, Swissair, the MD11... Lion Rock, Runway 13, the checkerboard...
I used to live in Hong Kong as a kid and my father would take me to the checkerboard. Everytime Swissair came by (I'm Swiss)we'd stand there, jump up and down and wave. (The pilots must have thought we were nuts!). And then its HB-IWE, my favourite of all Swissair Md-11's. I got the jumpseat on it once... good old times. :)
