Nostalgic Elbum: End of the Four Engine Jet Era

I just found some old photos from 2011, the year of the first 787 Dreamliner commercial flight, can’t believe it’s 12 years ago.

These photos was taken at Hong Kong Airport, which was a largest passenger hub in the world. In the mean time Hong Kong Government promote them as ‘‘Asia’s World’s City’’


Cathay B747-400

Cathay was used to be one of the best airline in the world, but due to pandemic, increased fuel prices and their illogical financing policy, now they are not the first choice airline of Hong Kong People anymore.

Their A340-300 was used to be my favourite
