Landing on 25R
Morning arrival from HKG. Sun has just set above amsterdam and creates a nice silouette.
9 hours 38 minutes into the flight, CX118 en-route AKL-HKG is cruising high over the Philippines. 90 minutes to go before we reach Hong Kong.
After 11 hours of smooth and very comfortable ride on board CX118, we touched down HKG on 25R. Reverse thrust vents wide open as we slow down on the runway. [Edit: Tks for the RWY correction]
