Hong Kong International Airport (HKG-VHHH)                           Website: www.hongkongairport.com


Located 20km west of the city of Hong Kong City-State in South China, Chek Lap Kok airport was opened in 1998 to replace the famous Kai Tak Airport which was subjected to had enough crazy approaches. The complex consists of two parallel runways 07R-25L and 25R-07L at the center of which two terminals. To the west cargo terminal hosts an impressive number of cargo flights around the world and is considered one of the most intense activity in the world! Traffic in Hong Kong is very intense, you can count on arrival and departure every minute and 30 seconds, and it is very common for one hour, the smallest model aircraft is an A330 succeeding! Local companies are based Cathay Pacific, Dragonair, Hong Kong Airlines and Hong Kong Express. Companies around the world serve the airport primarily through large aircraft, this is an interesting place to see a maximum aircraft companies and different backgrounds. Finally, runways 25R-07L are typically used for arrivals and 25L-07R for take-off, but sometimes cargo planes landing on them to limit the distance taxis ...

Our spotting trip to Hong Kong began Jan. 20, 2013, we flew to Brussels via Istanbul with Turkish company which proposed floor price. Point of view we are mainly spotting takeoffs went to the end of the 07R for arrivals from the "Sky Deck", an observation deck at the top without windows terminal 2. The morning wind from the east makes blue sky and sun, but every day around 10 AM the wind turns west and carries with it pollution from factories of China all around, all mixed with moisture the nearby sea as a horrible "Smog" as in London when the blast of the periphery made the air unbreathable ... Unfortunately, this phenomenon somewhat follow us every day preventing us from taking pictures in optimal conditions, but I invite you to discover the harvest done during 3 days of spotting around this area ..
