Hold On To Your Lunch

Opinions varied, especially among the passengers, but the approach to Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak airport had to be the coolest anywhere because it featured a low-altitude turn to final that occurred just above the homes and businesses of Kowloon. I was lucky enough to take that ride once, in a UAL 747, and it beat any roller coaster. With Kai Tak’s passing the approach lives on only in flight simulations. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of people who want to try to re-create it. Rock on, dudes.
