Boeing, 747-251B, N632US, Northwest Airlines, Kai Tak Hong Kong

Another one from Kai Tak, the most amazing international airport to ever grace this planet. Here is Northwest on her way to Narita, great looking scheme and plane... shame they had such crap service.

 

In 2005 she was converted to a freighter for Northwest and took up the reg N632NW. With the takeover of Northwest by Delta the cargo division was closed down and this aircraft was parked up in December 2009. Lucky for her Kalitta came to her rescue and she now operates as N790CK with them.

 

Again looking at my Kai Tak shots I now agree with those that say the aviation hobby in Hong Kong died with Kai Tak.
