Kai Tak airport which was shut down in 1998 was the site of botched landings that included planes crashing into the water and clipping buildings on their descent.
These spectacular images show the moment experienced pilots grappled with the notoriously dangerous landing, before the airport was closed by the government in 1998 for its poor safety record.

Get your facts straight. It was closed because it was old and HK required a new, modern airport. It also wasn't 'that' dangerous. It just seemed too to the untrained eye. Spectacular, yes.... purely closed for safety reasons, no.
