20.000ft above VHHH _ heavy traffic!

Yesterday, I flew my TBM to Macau, following a standard east approach that requires flying above HK airport.

Question: how many planes can you spot on this pic?

I spotted 4 and a possibly 5th one without your plane. I may be wrong, but is that what you call heavy traffic?

You are missing some, still… and yes it was packed in the sky around with planes doing long loops all over the area! Approach did a great job!

Nice shot of the airport from above!

@F1PlayBG not all planes will show up at once, especially at 20,000 ft.

As I said, I may be wrong.

Thanks! Indeed, I had to check liveflightapp.com on my PC to see all planes. IF would not let me see most of them.

You should totally try doing one for the FNF today in Atlanta! I bet you will get some cool pictures.

Cool idea! The only problem is that if there is no real approach above an airport, I might get into trouble with ATC… I will check this out.

Well I have tried, but the excellent approach controller IFAE-TAI kindly re-routed me around the airport. Our IFATC team is excellent! I could not take a single image of the crowded KATL alas!
