Landing at Kai Tak
      #409032 - 05/15/15 06:52 PM



A fun approach when the weather is cooperating. :-)

From PHNL 10:52, used 300,000 lbs. of fuel, TOW 871,185 lbs., LDW 574,869 (vref 148 KIAS).

Normal stop is PGUM, but bypassed this month because of the weather.

I did. Nothing but the best bunks. Management makes sure we have nothing but the best in accommodations. They're almost as good as what Senor Rraandy had in SA. :-))

Well, the crew rest area passes muster, but where do they put the ordinary passengers?

Yup, pretty sure, the "chicha" made me throwup sick but at a much lower altitude.
