Remarks: Saudi replaced the 744 on the HKG service with the 743 for a few weeks in 2010 which was fantastic as even back then passenger 747 classics were rare (especially RR-powered ones).
I’ve always been a big fan of the Saudi scheme.
It’s such a shame they suspended HKG. They operated RUH-HKG-MNL-HKG-RUH.
Remarks: OX203 leaving for Bangkok. It’s not common for it to be this clear & blue outside of summer in HKG but it does happen from time to time in autumn & early winter.
HS-UTW is one of many ex-JAL aircraft OX acquired over the years to expand their fleet.
This hobby just won't be the same when all the 747 classics are gone in a few years...
