I'm pretty sure that's not Chek Lap Kok. If it's really Hong Kong, it's in Kai Tak :D

Wonderful and interesting addition to a.net.

707-120s still flying with their original JT3C turbojet engines ("straight pipes"), like this one, were already pretty rare during the 70s.

Most had either been retired or converted to 707-120Bs, with quieter and more economic (only relatively speaking, of course) low-bypass turbofans, along with a number of smaller improvements.

Still have a soft spot for those old, smoky, thundering waterburners.
