Tricky Approaches - Kai Tak, Hong Kong

There are three approaches that I enjoy studying. My favorite is the westerly approach to Rwy 13 at Kai Tak in Hong Kong. The tricky part of the approach is a steep bank at low altitude near the end of he runway over a very populated city, shown above. The B-747 is only about a mile or two from the end of the runway in about a 45 degree bank but he appears to be lined up nicely.
