(Completed) - 747 Kai Tak Landing Competition @ VHHH - 191200ZAPR20


Qantas Virtual Group’s 747 Month

As we farewell the Boeing 747 from our fleet, we have dedicated an entire month leading up to our 8th anniversary to commemorate the B747 and the significant role it has played in the development of Australian Aviation. Hong Kong has always played a key role in Qantas’ history, with many Qantas 747s making the challenging approach into Hong Kong’s former international airport, Kai Tak. We have decided to host a landing competition in the 747, who can do the best landing into Kai Tak?

Check out this Qantas 747-400 making the turn into Kai Tak.
