Ah, landing at Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong used to be the life. From 1925 to 1998 it was the only airport with access to Hong Kong. Landing on Runway 13 always provided entertainment for the pilot and folks on the ground, but probably a lot of fear for those sitting in the back of the aircraft.
Today I am sharing four videos high lighting how exciting landing with large aircraft at Kai Tak Airport used to be. However, in 1998 a new airport was opened, Hong Kong International Airport and Kai Tak was closed.
VIDEO1: Shown above, shows a Japan Air Lines Boeing 747 Freighter from the ground landing at Kai Tak Airport
VIDEO2: Shows from the city how the large aircraft looked flying over.
VIDEO3: Takes a look at the approach from the cockpit
I never had the opportunity to land at Kai Tak, anyone else care to share their stories in the comments?Found at tnooz via Shashank @ Simpliflying
