14JUL20 / 1900Z - Kai Tak Flyout! @ VHHX

      Hello Infinite Flight Community! Welcome to the Kai Tak Flyout!

Kai Tak International Airport, or Káidāk Gēichèuhng, was known as Hong Kongs main Airport from 1956 to 1998 and also served as a hub for Cathay Pacific. It was sadly closed because a newer and more technologically advanced airport was being constructed and also because the airport was small, and it was aging and simply couldn’t hold a rising demand. Also, the airport was really hard to land at and really risky as planes would fly 50 feet above buildings and civilian homes. So with that , a new airport is known now known as Hong Kong Chek Lap Kok International Airport was built.

Anyway, Kai Tak Airport is one of the most famous airports in aviation history, as pilots would do the famous 90 degree turn with the checkerboard approach:

One of the most favorite and most famous aircraft in aviation history, (The Concorde) also served the airport with flights coming in from London and Paris. The airport also hosted a wide a range range of aircraft such as the 747-400, 747-200, MD-11, DC-10, L-1011, 777, A330 as the airport also notably served a huge range of retro aircraft swell as retro routes and especially cargo routes aswell.

I never knew the Concorde operated within Kai Tak… huh.

Ah yes, The DC-10 at Kai Tak. I can bolt straight out of there! I’ll take gate 4 with the AA going to LAX, Please.
(Btw… Infinite Flight has a Singapore MD-11 livery? or I’m just going crazy because I though they only had a livery for the DC-10?)

Absolutely, I’ll sign you up! And you are right about the MD-11 thing. Singapore owns the DC-10.

You can join the event now! Please state your gate, route and airline.

@Planeviation, There should be more Cathay gates. Looking to fly a Cathay route out.

Okay! I’ll Make some changes!

I added 5 more so that should be enough. I want to add a bit of diversity in terms of airlines and aircraft so that is why not every gate is filled with Cathay Pacific planes :D

Sorry to bother 😅 though I just also wanted to inform you that oddly in IF I remember that AA doesn’t have the DC-10 livery only for the MD-11… Anyway just to say I’ll be expected with that aircraft.
