In the early hours on 6 July 1998, a ceremony was held on the air traffic control tower to turn off the runway lights at Kai Tak Airport after the last flight had taken off. Kai Tak officially completed its historic mission after some 70 years’ service and eventually retired into history. If you have been to Kai Tak Airport before, whether to depart, arrive, transit, transfer, greet or bid farewell, you certainly will not forget its passenger terminal, aircraft apron, 13/31 runway and so forth. You are cordially invited to this subject talk “Kai Tak – An Old Neighbor” to learn about the unknown stories of Kai Tak Airport, such as the misunderstanding in the naming of Kai Tak, the pre-existence of San Po Kong and “the street of landing” (officially known as Tseuk Luk Street).

Talk conducted in Cantonese. Limited seat. Free admission by phone at 2927 6107 from 1.10.2017 (Sunday).
