Kai Tak Throwback

I decided to show up to @Wesleyhenrich event uninvited, well, I mean uh, on short notice, because somehow the event missed my eye on the IFC. Nonetheless I had great fun flying the dangerous approach in my iconic Cathay 747 from Taipei, screaming only hundreds of feet over the urban cityscape, just like to good old days…

Info

If Kai Tak were still Hong Kong’s main airport … do you think A350 / 787 … would land there?

I guess so, but that airport’s tiny size would never have survived for very long

It’s very possible. But the airport had closed before the 777 and 787 and A350.

Actually, the very first cathay 777-200s still got to land there…
