    They do that due to low-level wind shear. This wasn't taken at Kai Tuck was it? Final touchdown is done on one side to yaw the aircraft and align it with the runway.

    I personally is a big big fan of airliners.net too!!
    I like B747 most!! Especially UA!! =)

    C'mon guys,lets share watever aircrafts pics u guys have.
    I am very jealous of those who have access to the airport tarmac...especially those that can bring CAMERA IN!! *sobz*
    For security reasons, nobody can bring camera to tarmac unless they choose to flaunt the rules (less official reasons like to capture accidents...).
    That's where camera phones might come in useful ...

    Cross wind direction yes, but wind shear and micro-burst? Isn't that like hard to detect? Sorry, me no pilot so I dunno, just learn everything from flight simming and Discovery Channel. . From fly sim I played, landing at Kai Tak like that is because of the tight turn I had to make. Often I end up ditching into the sea.

    Anyhow, imagine if you were on that plane? @ 180 knots and 300 feet of the tarmac, it must've been a ball busting experience. LOL.

    And yeah, according to the website, it was at Kai Tak Intl.

    Well,from wat I read and see from some places... this kind of landing due to strong cross winds are very common in HK... But,scary sia... isn't it??
    -__-"'

    And also,I played FS2004 before..and landing one B747 is damn hard!!Due to its large wing...really is super cushion!!It jsut wun go down!!

    I was in the cockpit once when they did the same landing. I thought i was going to die.

    Siron, what config is needed to run FS2004? I have a P4 2.4GHz, 1 GB RAM, WinXP Pro, GeForce FX5700 256MB. Enough boh?


    also I used to play Jane's USAF but it doesn't work on WinXP. Anybody managed to make it run?

    I get the feeling there is something wrong with the photo series. The first three shots are look like the same picture resized to different sizes, and the last picture differs from the first three in that the aircraft in that picture does not seem to have the upturned stabilizers (winglets?) on the wingtips. Or at least, it is not visible.

    MORE THAN ENOUGH BRUDDER!
    BTW...don't mean this as a silly question, but you've got a joystick right? Makes a hell of a difference.

    I saw the exact same thing when i was on the roof top near the old kai tak airport....that was 10 years ago.

    I climb up the roof top to take pic of planes landing, there was a Qantus plane doing the same stunt, i tot the plane going to crash siah, there were lots of smoke when the wheels touch the ground.

    The amazing thing is that the plane actually pull up again , make a U-turn and then landed safely on the second try.

    I really hope i can capture that scene but guess what, my camera died for no reason at that instant
