Is this airport/scenario/scenery included in FS2004 ? Or do I have to download an add-on?
After browsing other avation enthusiast sites (flightlevel350.com, airliners.net) it seems to me that this airport was the "wet-dream", to quote from a great article on airliners.net, of all pilots.
There are many infamous photos and videos of 747s landing/semi-crashing onto runway 13 with extremely abnormal final approaches. The following photos speak for themselves.
It might be me, but I don't see any pictures.
I have heard of this airport, and I think it is in FS9. Apparently, you have to have a separate license to land a commercial jet there.
Ive had a look and none of the links you used work
I have found this link that works with a few pics ➡
Damn! The pics work just fine for me.
Okay, let me try one more time.
okay, if all else fails, here are the links:
There are two airports, VHHX listed as old, and VHHM. Both are named hong Kong International.
😀 Foot note for 1st photo ➡

It is in fs9 but the default scenery is not very good.Hong Kong scenery makes it very realistic but its patware 😞
Do they still use this airport for commercial traffic, or am I right in thinking that they now use a modern Hong Kong airport?
Kai Tak was closed on July 6, 1998. The new airpot is Chek Lap Kok.
The passsenger terminal was eventually transformed into government offices, automobile dealerships, go kart racecourse, snooker, recreational facilities, bowling alley, car sales showroom and golf range.
IS it me or is the former airport really dangerouse to land and takeoff?? 😳 ❓ ❓ ❓ ❓
Go to airsidetv.com and watch the md-11 and 747 landing at Kai Tak.
It was considered a little dangerous. The wind plus the lead in approach made it tricky at least.
There is a nice addon package for the kai tak airport which adds a TREMENDOUS amount of scenery as well as adventure flights. VERY good!!!! It is around 20.00$ though.
