Rare window view of Kai Tak, taken from Cathay Pacific TriStar VR-HHV during take-off roll on Rwy 13 in 1981. This photo was taken at the start of a 2.1 hour flight to Bangkok. Aircraft on the apron include KLM and Air France Boeing 747s, two Cathay Pacific TriStars and a Thai Airways A300 (and a CP Boeing 707 and Golden Falcon Tristar at right). A thick haze affected the view of the mountains in the background. Kai Tak Airport was closed in 1998, replaced by Chek Lap Kok, also Code HKG/VHHH.
