CX 507 airborne for Hong Kong just after runway change to 06
"Taking off" to Hong Kong as CX292. From 27 march 2006 this flight will become daily instead of actual 5xw.
With the gear nearly fully retracted, this heavy A340 lumbers into the air on another long haul flight across the Pacific.
Taking off from runway 07R under typhoon signal 3. The tower reported the wind is 060 degree at 27 knots, gusting to 35 knots.

Approaching 23L, with fantastic contrails forming over wing. These cool moist mornings are just perfect.
The deep green lush hills make for a perfect backdrop for these longhaul departures on a sunny afternoon.
