Thread: Checkerboard kai tak Hong kong

  1. Default Checkerboard kai tak Hong kong

    Is there a visible checkerboard in the standaard scenery fs9 for the old Hong Kong airport?
    Flew with A cessna A few aproaches but never saw a checkerboard.

    No there isn't. You will need to download an addon airport for that. There are at least two freeware airports, one modern and one classic.

    You need to search for the extremely well made "9Dragons" Hong Kong/Kai Tak scenery here on FlightSim because that also includes your checkerboard and even a flashing light VFR approach. A great "must have" scenery indeed but you will also need Jim Vile's AI approach file so that approaching AI aircraft do not approach through the mountain.
    A truly great scenery.

    Good luck and happy landings.

    Ok there is no checkerboard so . thanks to both Hans and Hjwalter ,

    Go see the free addons Calclassic and the 9dragon for Kai tak , dont wanna invest in Fly tampa cause of the coming new msflightsimulater though still fly both fs9 and fsx so maybe will play all 3 then.

    If I remember correctly, the 9Dragons scenery has already this AI approach file, so no need to add another one. There you can see some pictures I took when I still had FS9:

    Off topic . . . sorry. But a friend of mine used to sit with his friends with their legs dangling over the checkerboard, watching the planes coming in . . . great fun!

    AFAIK all versions include the curved AI approach, including my Classic version.

    Hi,

    Got the 9dragon Scenery, not bad but a lot off buildings popping up very late.

    Yes, the 9Dragons Kai Tak/Hong Kong scenery can be quite demanding on older and not so fast systems. However, Larry (above), has posted a picture of a CalClassic version, clearly also showing the checker board. So maybe you could download and try that one instead, a version which I myself did not know even existed.

    Good luck and happy landings.
