Hong Kong - International (Chek Lap Kok) (HKG / VHHH)
China - Hong Kong, June 30, 2006
Remark
Photographer
B-HIH (cn 23120/596) Cathay Pacific "Silver Bullet" freighter was approaching runway 07R as flight CX058 from Paris via Dubai. B-HIH is the first B747 freighter to receive this "new" livery, followed by B-HMD, an ex-Air Hong Kong B747F. The plane looks like a piece of mirror and the wet ground looks similarly after heavy rain too!

China - Hong Kong, June 28, 1998
Remark
Photographer
9V-SPK (cn 28023/1099) A break in the clouds illuminated her nicely on what was a rather cloudy day. She would be painted into the famous "Tropical" colors within months of this shot, but would sadly be written-off at TPE on October 31, 2000.

Canadian Airlines
Boeing 747-475
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, July 4, 1998
Remark
Photographer
C-FCRA / 882 (cn 24895/837) Is taxiing into the designated spot arriving from Manila as "Empress" 008 (will depart for Vancouver later on) at good old Kai Tak. A330-300 (HDA), A340-300 (CPA), 747-200(SF) (AHK), 747-SP (CCA), 747-400 (DLH, UAL), MD-11 (MDA), L-1011 (ATA), and BAe-146 (Pacific East Asia Cargo) can also be seen. Although the company has since merged into Air Canada and this aircraft has already been retired from that company, I am glad to see that she seems to spend a peaceful life with Aerolineas Argentinas (LV-AXF).

United Airlines
Boeing 747-422
Hong Kong - Kai Tak International (HKG / VHHH) (closed)
China - Hong Kong, July 1, 1998
Remark
Photographer
N***** Interesting shot from the Checker-board Hill. Firstly the UA's B744 was banking tight towards the buildings!!! Besides that you can find crowds of photographers shooting this aircraft from another angle. Just move your sight down from the front landing gear until the purple/white building. Then you can see them leaning against the upper balconies of the famous building, where you can get the landing shots of IGS approach Rwy 13.
