Airline videographer Henry Tenby then takes us for a 3-day visit to Baiyun Airport in Guangzhou (formerly Canton), back when many of the Chinese domestic airlines were still using Soviet aircraft. The stars of the show are the Tu154s of China United Airlines, China Southwest, and Sichuan Airlines. Great noise! The action is further spiced up by China General Yak-42s, a Vietnam Airlines Tu134, and more Tu154 action served up by Aeroflot, Air Volga, and Baikal Airlines. Additional domestic Chinese dishes include Shanghai Airlines 757, China Northwest MD80, BAe 146 and A300, Wuhan and Yunnan 737-300s, Air China 747SP, and lots of China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines fleet action. The second half of the DVD serves up a generous helping of non-stop, jet action filmed from various scenic locations at Hong Kong’s Kai Tak airport, back in 1995 and 1997. Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific Airways’ fleet mixes company with Kai Tak regulars including 747s of Mandarin Airlines (747SP), China Airlines, Philippine Airlines, Air China, Thai, United, KAL, Canadian, Polar Air Cargo, Air France, British Asia Airways, Air France, and Singapore Airlines, in addition to MD11s of Garuda, China Eastern, Philippine Air Lines ... and more!
