The old days in Hong Kong

Some neat pictures of Kai Tak airport, the old one in Hong Kong which required a ninety degree turn shortly before landing while flying between the skyscrapers.

I landed there a couple of times in the back of airliners, and once while flying a full-motion 747 simulator. I was surprised to discover that it was easier than I thought, but that was probably because I didn’t have real buildings to crash into if I screwed it up.
