Remarks: Definitely highlight of the entire day, as Saudia does not send their passenger planes to Hong Kong not to mention a chance for the SkyTeam livery B777. Here Saudia 883 is lifting off runway 02L for Jeddah.
Remarks: This is one of the abandoned houses built along the airport perimeter where its roof top gives a great view over the airport. Normally good for photos during afternoon for both directions of the west runway (02L/20R). We were all amazed by such clear weather on a winter day here in Guangzhou, except the temperature dropped below 6 °C with gust wind over 25 knots. Google Maps coord: 23.393295, 113.285525
Remarks: She is one of the two B747Fs added to ACT Airlines fleet after HNA Group (Hainan Airlines) took up 49% of ACT's stake and re-branded ACT into MyCargo. This ex. ANA JA8958 is operating as Cargo Turk 494 departing for Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan.
