Hey, fellow hong konger here, were you near avseco? I tried getting there but the exits from the airport express were sealed off.

Yes I was on Cheong Yip rd

And did you get there by bus? It seems like this is the only way to bypass security.

Yeah I got the S1 from Tung Chung

Yes, especially with all this going on. We can’t even go into the terminal without showing our boarding pass to an ‘officer’.


Yeah that annoyed me big time when I had to return home after taking the airport express.

Yeah it’s a shame, however this spot is actually very good!

I really wished I could’ve utilized the observation deck better before it was closed. Now I just have to rely on some road near 07R for 07R ops…sad. What I dislike even more is the lack of decent planespotting spots at VHHH. Take EDDF for example, they have a darn platform for taxiing aircraft, would it pain them to install something similar near HAECO? The platform would be heavily utilized for 07R and 25L ops so usage is not an issue. Here’s the platform at EDDF:

Who knows, maybe something like this will come now that the SkyDeck is closed.

Even a skydeck like at Tokyo Haneda would be appreciated very much, but looking at the renders of the third runway proposal I doubt this would happen. There used to be a thing where you could rent a boat to planespot by 25R, however due to construction of the third runway it’s now off limits, hopefully it may reopen when the third runway is completed or else we will barely have any planespotting locations to use.
