Kai Tak approach lights,
(from a book published in 1962)
The final segment of the appproach via Lei Yue Mun Gap was marked by centreline lighting. Later, a single crossbar would be added on pylons 100 m from the runway end to mark the distance from touchdown.
Thanks Moddsey for the information, you remember it so clearly. Could this be part of the written examination for controller's revalidation examination ?
The information on the lighting system at Kai Tak is available by way of old flying charts and old photos!
