Hong Kong has, in my humble opinion and experience, the best airport in the world. And yet, I wish I could have landed at the legendary Kai Tak at least once before it closed. And now, thanks to the Internet, I can… Kinda.
Airliners.net has a collection of photos documenting the “Kai Tak Heart Attack” — a low descent over the rooftops of Kowloon, then a last-minute 47-degree turn before touching down in the heart of the city. You can get to them from the search page by clicking on the photo above or here, then select “Hong Kong – Kai Tak” under “Country/Airport” and “Most Popular” under the “Sort By” heading.
