Hong Kong. The place where typhoons usually occur in summer (Northern Hemisphere), i.e. after next sunday there'll be no more typhoons in Hong Kong (?) .. But today, we are unlucky. It was on German TV a few minutes ago, so I thought I should be interested in it, especially with my nickname. As I do in most of the cases where the weather might give us (i.e. passengers, crew and last but not least pilots in a simulator, with the real weather of today) an interesting flight, I 'telephone' with the arrival. So, what does Chek Lap Kok arrival tell us in these minutes. 27C, HKT 03:17 (+1, i.e. monday). And three flights cancelled. But most of the flights take place, with delayed arrival. Which is good news after all what they showed on TV.. That's what Hong Kong is famous for in my eyes. The airport is open, and they are flying. Heavy rain, or a decent wind? Yes, why not. That's not a weather for daredevils. They accept it because they can. PS: That also seems to be true for LH #796. ...
