Players warm up for a game of football (soccer) in the shadow of a historic landmark. The crumbling remnants of the infamous "checkerboard approach" to Hong Kong's old airport (Kai Tak) which closed on July 6, 1998 remain today; however, in disrepair. The once aviation orange and white checkerboard paint has peeled and faded after years of neglect. The once famous approach marked a visual reference point to the final approach leg for Runway 13. Once reaching the mark, an aircraft would turn 47°, lining up for a final approach only 2 miles from the airport and typically less than 1,000 feet above ground! Pilots had to be specially certified to fly this bonkers approach. It became known as the "Kai Tak Heart Attack."

#tbt to my maiden voyage on @surfair. In the not so distant past, @lifeandhops and @yearofthetiger2010 were nice enough to arrange for my girl and me to fly up north with them so we could all get out of LA and hang out together for a weekend in The City. Needless to say that a great time was had by all. By the way @surfair, if you're looking for a new pitchman to happily represent your wonderful brand...I might know a guy...(wink wink). #private #privateaviation #privatejet #actorslife #greatfriends #grateful #lifeisplane #aviation #flight #surfair #smooth #nohassle #latothebay #landmarkaviation #fbo #highandoutsidemovie #harrismanagement #hiMOM #yoDAD #blessed
