Expectations for Today

Today I finally get to stop and see Hong Kong. Cathy Pacific flight 714 leaves Singapore at 11:05 am. arriving in Hong Kong at 3:00 pm for a flight time of 3 hours and 55 minutes. No time changes needed here. Follow the ORANGE line on the map below from Singapore to Hong Kong.

What actually happened this day.

Things happened pretty much as planned. The flight in a Boeing 777-200 was ok except for about half an hour while we were we were flying through a line of thunderstorms. Lunch had to be delayed. The plane flew over the city of Hong Kong as we approached but there were too many clouds and they won't let you use electronic equipment during the approach to the airport. The only pictures are some taken after passing the thunderstorms nearing Hong Kong.

A thunderstorm many kilometres away.

A closer view of the same storm.

Another similar storm.

Some clouds from 37,000 ft.
