Would an A380 fit in Kai Tak? I was thinking of flying one in from YSSY

4 Likes

I would assume not, since Kai Tak closed before the A380 went into service, also for the same reason it would be very unrealistic.

3 Likes

No - neither can the 747-8. But all other aircraft are fine.

I will be doing this one (casual server)! I will check Windy the day of the flight, but does anyone know what the wind//weather at Kai Tak tends to be?

2 Likes

as a hongkonger, i think (can’t promise) it will be normally less than 10 knots side / head wind, sometimes can get more windy in summer with typhoons! so good luck to you! :)
(for now is 17 knots headwind if takeoff at rwy13
