Hong Kong - International (Chek Lap Kok) (HKG / VHHH) China - Hong Kong, September 17, 2010
OH-LGC (cn 48512/529) AY8862 to Helsinki rockets off from runway 25L on a gorgeous day for spotting. When I say rockets it is literally true for this one. Rarely I have seen a MD-11 climbing so fast. Thanks to an 9 hour delay (scheduled departure should have been at 05:40 hours) it was possible to catch this beauty in some great light. Sometimes delays can be wonderful!
