McDonnell Douglas MD-11
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, Mid 1990's
Remark
Photographer
I-DUPB (cn 48431/534) Ever seen an aircraft come in for landing bascially below the checkerboard!!!! This was THE lowest and scariest approach I ever saw at Kai Tak. The AZ MD11 was so low that my heart missed a beat as I thought that he was going to put the aircraft into Kowloon City. If you compare this photo to others on the IGS, you will see just how low the MD11 was!

Lufthansa
Boeing 747-430
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, February 16, 1998
Remark
Photographer
D-ABVS (cn 28286/1109) A famous landmark for all crews approaching Rwy 13 at Kai Tak: Overhead the famous sport ground during the final turn, the crew has to turn and keep the descent rate, a rather unique experience close to the houses. A lot of condensation above the wing.

Boeing 747-230F/SCD
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, October 1983
Remark
Photographer
D-ABYU (cn 22668/538) My late father took this picture. If I remember rightly this aircraft aborted its take off after an engine failure, this was the result, I believe the airframe was recovered and put back in service, sorry for the poor quality pictures but I thought they may be of interest.

Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, June 14, 1998
Remark
Photographer
9V-SMC (cn 24063/736) Inspired by Mr. Hunt, I couldn't resist any longer to dig up a real Kai Tak shot. After spending some days on the building for the famous banking shots, I decided to go elsewhere. I found another nice roof and after a while, I was accompanied by a guy. Years later on, I discovered that it was Alan Tsui when I saw his photo on this site and which can be seen here. Compare and you'll find out that everything is similar....

China - Hong Kong, June 14, 1998
Remark
Photographer
9V-SMC (cn 24063/736) Another airshow for all Kai Tak fans. However, it was not really performed in the sky but at an altitude below 100 feet.... just breathless!!! Not enough? Just search similar photos in this website which were taken from another angle, and more than that there is a video clip from YouTube which should be related to this shot. Just check it out and enjoy!!!
