Product Description
Hong Kong High History of a Century of Aviation in Hong Kong Hong Kong High celebrates more than a century of aviation development in Hong Kong from 1911 to 2014 -- from the first flight of the fragile Farman biplane to the robust aviation industry of today -- updating the fascinating history of aviation begun in "Wings over Hong Kong" published by Odyssey in 1998. Hong Kong High provides 176 fact-filled pages in a lively and readable bilingual English and Chinese format, with more than 200 historical photographs, illustrations, and original maps. Part 1 features in-depth coverage of Hong Kong's first flight by Charles Van den Born in his Farman biplane, the inside story of building the Farman replica in 1997, and the reenactment of the first flight. Part 2 presents a concise history of Hong Kong's first 100+ years of aviation, featuring the aircraft, the events, and the personalities that made it happen. Part 3 highlights Cathay Pacific's own success story from 1946 to the present - along with that of subsidiaries Dragonair and Air Hong Kong - which is intimately interwoven with Hong Kong's own success as Asia's World City and gateway to China.
