The flight is tonight! Anyone who wants a last minute gate we have many left!
EDIT Davin has just gotten ghosted along with Travis (Niagraaviation) I am not getting into the details. Would everyone be ok if we moved this event to next Saturday?
Hello everyone! This weekend I am organizing a throwback flight! On Saturday, October 28th we will be flying Tokyo-Narita to Kai Tak in a Japan Airlines Boeing 747-200. Flashing back to the checkerboard approach used for decades up until the 21st century, I would love to make this flight huge. With a difficult approach and a large group flight! It will be extremely fun!
Climb: Climb to 10,000 at VS 2,500 Fpm & speed 240 KIAS.
After 10,000 Feet speed up to 320 KIAS and decrease VS to 2,000.
Once Past 30,000 Set cruise speed to M.85 and lower VS to 1,500 FPM
Cruise: 32,000 @ Mach .85
NOTAMS: Please Spawn in ten minutes before the flight with callsign KAI-TAK. Also, Please Copy Clevelandspotter’s flight plane before taxi. Gate Assignments will be posted Below. Comment for a gate. No VA or affiliation needed. My friend and I are hosting this even and We will be there!
For everyone who hasn’t landed at kai tak yet, Here Is a demonstration of the approach path.

I’d love to join this, but there’s absolutely no way I can do the entire flight. I might come and join the party out of somewhere else, maybe.
Now that you have added Gate Assignments, everything is all good👍👍👍.
i just needed to go on liveflight to double check everything. I had them copied.
I am interested but that is around a four and a half hour flight…so is it possible for you to split it into two legs like from RCTP to VHHH which is only about a ninety min flight there… just a suggestion for those who cannot make the whole trip !
we did it in 3 hours 10 minutes the other day cruising at mach .90. we will consider this for sure. By the way i am @cleveland.spotter on IG if you have any more questions.
thanks davin ur too quick
don’t get banned again ;)
we are working on a way to possibly shorten the flight time. How long is your ideal max flight time?
are you going to sign up for a gate?
@DeerCrusher would love it if you could join us!
Anthony rowse 4 life wants 92
How can we make the flight possible for you?
Thanks for your interest …first of all l want to confirm that the flight starts at almost 12:00 A.M. GMT On Oct 28 which means that would be at 7:00 P.M E.D.T. on Oct 27 my time… all that being accurate then your flight from RJAA would last about four hours and thirty min…according to a flight time calc program on the net…so that means your participants would not be landing at VHXX till around 0430Z or 11:30 pm my time… so what l propose is joining up with you all from RCTP which is only about a ninety min flight to Kai Tak unless some of you choose to stop there as well… on your secondary leg… so that is my suggestion for those who for whatever reason choose not to fly the continuous route that was previously enunciated !!!
00:00 zulu is 8:00pm EST
Would you do it if we changed it to Taipei to Kai Tak? That is a 1 hour flight.
I am -5 hrs from GMT in EDT time since it will not go back to EST until Nov …don’t know what TZ you are in at the start of the flight… but you and your flight group members don’t have to change your fpl at all if l l rendezvous with you from RCTP and fly the last approx ninety min leg following your remaining fpl wpts to Kai Tak …my older device will not allow much more than a two and a half hour flight before l run out of memory and/or storage space… so that would mean that my ETA for rendezvous with your group would be at approx 0300Z or 10 pm my time …l can adjust to whatever fpl you choose within an error margin of +/- 2.30 hrs
ok sounds good. I live in ohio.
