Boeing 747-281F/SCD
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, 1997
Remark
Photographer
JA81** (Photo 4 of 4) The pilot miraculously manages to straighten it up and complete the landing roll...and they only burst a couple of tires and caused minor damage to the number 4 engine pod. I still can't believe what I saw.

China - Hong Kong, 1997
Remark
Photographer
JA81** (Photo 3 of 4) Just after touchdown. Compare to the previous photo how he has slid sideways. He now has full left aileron and some rudder to try and get it back. I thought I was going to see a plane crash.

Remark
Photographer
JA81** (Photo 1 of 4) Another NCA showing us all what not to do. There is only a slight crosswind in the windsock and he's over the runway, but the next photo shows it all going wrong.

Remark
Photographer
JA81** (Photo 2 of 4) Touchdown, but at a huge angle to the centreline. I can't even image what the crew are thinking at this point.

Airbus A330-342
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, May 1996
Remark

VR-HLA (cn 071) "Purple Rain". Spectacular effects from water vapour condensation as a CX A330 turns at the checkerboard approaching Kai Tak. (If the aircraft is on ground then this is a vehicle only!!!)

Air China
Boeing 747-2J6BM
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, Early 1990's
Remark
Photographer
B-2446 (cn 23071/591) I was having a good dig through my old slides, looking for a "Kowloon City" shot. I only ever tried this once or twice, trying to catch an aircraft on finals swooping over Kowloon City whilst turning for Runway 13 and getting it clean. Kai Tak was really a special place from any angle! [Kodachrome 64 Slide]

B-HIK (cn 23534/659) It was here before but now its time to be returned to Airliners.net. Thanks to all that have made this the most well known photo I have ever taken.

Boeing 747-4B3
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, April 13, 1998
Remark
Photographer
F-GEXA (cn 24154/741) See, the soccer player on the fuselage was kicking the ball as aggressive as what the aircraft was turning...! A good example showing the classic IGS landing to Kai Tak Rwy 13 with a steep turn by the famous checkerboard.

Boeing 747-467
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, July 26, 1997
Remark
Photographer
VR-HUB (cn 25873/937) Definitely one of my photography highlights, Kai Tak! Taken from seat 54J onboard CPA256, routing LHR-HKG. Those that flew this approach know exactly how it felt when the entire plane banked right over the checker board and landed seconds later in spotter's paradise! Scanned from original print.

Northwest Airlines
Boeing 747-451
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, July 1, 1998
Remark
Photographer
N670US / 6310 (cn 24225/804) A shot from the famous checkerboard hill where you can have a clear picture of the movements happening in Kai Tak. Seeing the foreground I really miss those days spotting aircrafts from the rooftops in Kowloon City... Hey by the way, besides the "World Plane" can you recognize what types or even airlines do other aircrafts in this shot belong to? ;-)
