Hong Kong Airport

        Old Hong Kong Airport. Now called Kaitak Airport.

        Just finding the airport is Fun ~ Fun ~ Fun !

 

             Photos # 1 and # 2 were taken from the
   high rise balconies   sort  of like  driving thru
   midtown Manhattan to Times Square!!!
 
          No  autopilot stuff here...hand-fly that
   sucker, and don't screw  up...!!!


 

      The  prayer : "Lord, if I'm gonna die...please
   don't let it be pilot  error!" Is this New York ?

 

     

 

 

At  ILS "Minimums"...you break out of the
   clouds at the top of a  hill!!!  First one to
   see it screams  "Checkerboard in sight"!!

 

 

 


 

    Now...hard  right turn and dive!!! ... and don't
   mess around, or you simply won't make  it!!
   Is that a short runway or  what!!


     

 

 

        Woe  to you if you're much too high!!!

       


 

        Strong  cross winds were common ... so you had to "crab" all the way to the  runway!!!

       

 


        Sometimes  the cross-winds were stronger than  others...

       


 

       Over-shoot,  and you're in the drink ... kick it out of the crab too soon,  and
     you're  blown back off the runway.  Wait too late, and "crunch"...# 4  engine!!!

       

 

 

       Overreact  on the crab correction, and "Crunch"  # 1  engine!!!

       


    Don't "Float"  or try to make a smooth landing,
   Just put it on!!!  "Firm" landings  help
   dissipate energy, and help you  stop!!!

     

 

 

        Drop  too low, and you'll drag your wheels thru the high  rises!!!

       

 

 

What  I said  was:     .. that was a nice smooth touchdown though,  Sir !

 

 
 
I'd say:  Ask those at the ticket counter if
   your aircraft plans to land at the old Hong
   Kong Airport (Now the Kaitak Airport). If
   you get an affirmative answer, quick,
   change flights!!   Tough place to  visit,
   especially by  air!
