SGN - HKG.
Cathay 270 departing runway 18L to Hong Kong
CX475 enroute from TPE to HKG.
The B-HXE operating flight CX270 (To Hong Kong, China) departs from runway 24 (also known as the Kaagbaan).
I will definitely miss the A340s when they are eventually withdrawn from the fleet by the end of the decade, and will especially miss getting shots like these of their heavy takeoffs.
These things are amazing to look at...and that is about it, from what I have heard :) 1600px [Canon 550D + Canon 100-400mm L]
