 New Territories

The park near the top of Tai Mo Shan.

Another place I remembered - the British Army village at Sek Kong - this used to be the swimming pool and NAAFI.

My old house!! Married Quarter No 4 - still standing after 50 years - I spent Christmas 1958 here.

Lookout Point at Lok Ma Chau - overlooking mainland China.

Map of the area.

There is still a fence between China and Hong Kong...

Tsing Ma bridge linking Kowloon to the airport.

The equally impressive Ting Kau bridge.

With no aircraft to photographs for two days, I just had to take this shot of a Singapore Airlines A380 approaching Chek Lap Kok.

Just when I thought there were no more aircraft to photograph, we saw this biplane hanging in the departure lounge at the airport.

It is a replica of a 1910 Farman called 'Spirit of Sha Tin' - and made the first ever flight in Hong Kong in 1911.
