Cathay Pacific crash 1949
Date picture taken (may be approximate): 
Saturday, January 1, 1949


There was a Cathay Pacific DC-3 crash on 24th Feb. 1949 near Breamar Resevoir. All 23 people onboard where killed after a go-around in poor weather on the way back from Manila.

The photo above is of Kai Tak and I can't see any crash, perhaps it was a minor accident?

Braemar Reservoir was above North Point on HK Island

Yes sorry chaps, I was trying to paste this photograph into the other thread of the same name, and have accidentally created a new thread it seems.

The Braemar Hill crash is properly documented on the other thread...

Apologies. Perhaps the threads can be merged or something?
