This wonderful marvel of engineering is the old version of the Cathay Pacific Jumbo Jet we lovingly refer to as "The Giant Pickle".

Since then they have re painted the fleet a subdued Gray/Green which is a little harder to spot from a distance.

This amazing stunt they called a landing, right over the condos of Kowloon was eventually deemed unsafe and the much loved Kai Tac Airport was replaced by Hong Kong's new Super Airport out on Lantau Island.
