First time in Kai Tak

After like many months of flying as in to grade 5 I decided to try out the closed Kai Tak which I used a retired aircraft from Manila the approach was kinda hard but I made it with cool shots Along the landing
Route:RPLL-VHHX
Flight Time:1:44
Aircraft: Boeing 747-400 (Philippine Airlines)


Turning over

A 747 coming in hot

Runway 13 On site

This is where I started to get crosswinds

100, 50 , 40…

Nailed it!

DC-10 version:

I also recently landed at that airport and I must mention that although it is not easy to land, with enough experience later it will be easy
