Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong holds a legendary status in aviation history, known for its challenging approaches through the city’s skyscrapers and mountains into Kowloon Bay.

Closing in 1998 for a more accessible Chek Lap Kok Airport, Kai Tak’s difficult landings, especially for large aircraft like the 747, remain iconic. It was a favorite spot for aviation enthusiasts to capture the dramatic maneuvers required to land amidst natural and urban obstacles. Today, the site serves as a cruise ship terminal, but the memories of its unique aviation challenges continue to captivate.
