Korean Air Boeing 747-300 on very short final to runway 13 at Hong Kong's old Kai Tak Airport in May 1998. Kai Tak approaches were famously dramatic and almost a tourist attraction of their own. This is about a half mile from landing... runway is to the left!

Busy place. Lots going on. Glad the landing gear is down, otherwise the plane looks a little shaky. I like the angle of the plane and I like the composition very much with the Kodak in the background and the city scape. You're right, dramatic is the perfect word. Maria
