Hello community! Today I was flying from Singapore to Hong Kong. The reason I flew into Kai Tak is because I was flying a DC-10 and when those were flying, Kai Tak was operational. I was on approach runway 31 but had to do a missed approach due to winds. I then went into do a approach into runway 13 (big mistake you’ll see why). Remember this was night time and since my light source is behind me, there was a lot of glare so I couldn’t see properly. Then I realised that something looks wrong so I changed the time to noon for a second just to see if everything is ok. If I hadn’t done that, I would have crashed straight into that hill. The hill was extremely closed to me so I couldn’t do a missed approach and slowly climb. I had to do a terrain escape manoeuver (I think that’s what it’s called) otherwise I would have crashed. But this wasn’t the issue. I thought I was doing a good approach because I could see the airport clearly. Then I realised, I could see the airport through the hill! I think this is a bug so I’m reporting it.
This has been a known issue for a very very long time, and it’s just something that cannot be resolved until further work on the graphics engine has been completed.
Ahh ok, sorry about that, didn’t know that this was a known problem.
