Hong Kong - International (Chek Lap Kok) (HKG / VHHH) China - Hong Kong, September 18, 2004
HB-IGH (cn 46067/455) The second highlight of the day - Jet Aviation's DC-8-72 which accompanied Republique Gabonaise (Gabon Government) 's DC-8-73, TR-LTZ, on its 7-day visit to Hong Kong. Both HB-IGH and TR-LTZ are re-engined DC-8, but the former is shorter in length. We were really excited to spot 2 variations of DC-8 on the same day. HB-IGH was seen here leaving Hong Kong at 1020LT, 20 minutes after TR-LTZ had departed. Notice that the wing light under its left wing was missing.
