Plane Spotting Event in Hong Kong Kai Tak Intl VHHX

YouTube Channel

Hello everyone and welcome to a new and unique spotting event! Get in my time machine and lets go back in the late 90s! 1998 was the last year Kai Tak Intl Airport was serving Hong Kong as it’s main International Airport! Kai Tak is also known for it’s special arrival procedure for RWY13 and this will be our arrival runway for the event! PLEASE NOTE! There are no procedures in IF for this airport but im providing you in this thread the charts for arrival procedures and missed approach. Keep in mind that aircrafts had to fly inside the city to get there so even though we dont have 3D cities, realism on approcah has to be on point! It’s difficult but fun at the same time. So, are you ready? Write me in the comments your CALLSIGN, ROUTE and AIRCRAFT to sign in! Only those who perform the approach according to the chart will be eligible for getting featured in the video! In the link bellow you can find a full list of all airlines and destinations that used to serve this airport.
