Pretty balsy at such a low altitude!
Thanks guys! No idea why this photo wasn't a FA staff pick?
It deserves to be a staff pick. What a great shot!

Haha Tom I was thinking EXACTLY the same thing!!

This gives a new meaning to the tower saying "early right turnout approved". Great shot!

Looks like a 74 landing at Kai Tak...craziest airport in the world...should say was.

You bought it new. At least get it of the lot :-)
Now I know why my last freight shipment from Europe was crushed.
Great photo!

Great shot! I can't believe this photo was not featured as a staff pick when currently there are 135 votes!
I would have banked on this being a staff pick too.
