Give me the best airport where planespotters always frequent...


to those who don't know KT, this is what we've missed years ago...

...although Kai Tak was the best there is, its existence just didn't last long...(i like Kai Tak...such a bummer that the first time i went to HKG it was already Chek Lap Kok)...

...So any other Airport with "special features"? hehehe...

KaiTak (VHHX) is an old airport in Hong Kong! And now it maybe no longer in use! I have been there and... saw no planes! The Chek Lap Kok airport (VHHH) is built by the Britist people and now, it is in use! But KaiTak is the coolest airport, i think so! This air port is very hard to land, that is! Mountains and seas... they're killers!

KaiTak just have one runway! That why this is not used as an international and domestic airport! This airport is used to be a military airport! How cool it is! :)

PS: KaiTak is located in Kowloon ([kʰau.luːn], CN: 九龍, VN: Cửu Long), Hong Kong! Its coordinates are 22°19′43″N 114°11′39″E.

1/4 of the runway has been demolished...sad...i can't even believe that despite being called "dangerous"...only a few accidents happened...unbelievable! everyone who knows aviation even missed kai tak very much (me included...hehehe)

to the highlight in red : Kai Tak was used as HK's main airport...Chek Lap Kok only took over Kai Tak's place in July 1998...
