Kai Tak approach with Boeing 757

Around that day I’m thankful that the China southern 757 got its winglets removed and I would love to try it out on the famous (maybe) Kai tak approach around Hong Kong’s old airport (which is now a harbor for ships) I thought I would try it out of Guangzhou since it’s easier for me (not sure if it’s a real route though but it could be from Beijing or anyway China Southern hub other than Guangzhou)


Boeing 757-200

I may try out some VHS Style photos but can’t find the good font of it

After 15-20 minutes in the air I descending into the right approach passing by Hong Kong’s latest airport VHHH

Nice journey! There’s flight between Guangzhou & HK in real life prior the pandemic 😷 flown by Dragonair & CZ(ages ago).

Just a little reminder, all flights arriving HK from Mainland should be higher than FL135 prior their further descend to VHHH/VHHX (vice versa to mainland) when crossing the border of two airspace, this is a measure to safeguard HK’s air traffic which allows the airport to maximise its capacity while dozens of airport nearby.
