Les Tribulations d'un Chinois en Chine - Jean-Paul Belmondo (1965) - Kai Tak Airport, Kowloon City

There are some interesting things to see in the (compulsory) Kai Tak shots. Including some great views over Kowloon Tsai park.

The curved road you can see in the lower pictures is the service road that still cuts into the park. You can access it via Inverness Road which is the larger road underneath the plane in the bottom picture. Just poking up at the bottom of those lower pictures are the orange roofs of the pool houses. I hadn't realised the pool had been there for so long. Some of the buildings along Inverness Road are also still around including the ones at the lower part of the picture which include Yee Court (closest to the bottom of the picture) and the Bethel Kindergarten with the sloped roof behind it on the opposite side of Dumbarton Road - actually the whole complex there is part of the Bethel Bible Seminary and is all still intact.

In the shot below the large building at the bottom of the frame is the pre-extension Munsang College and the sort-of-pinkish building centre screen is a nameless residential block that still sits on the end of Dumbarton Road where it joins Junction Road.

We'll finish with this view across the tarmac of the runway towards the old terminal building.
