Received by email. Date is approximate. Notes attached:

The traffic has been stopped for a landing aircraft on Runway 13. Note the police post in the centre of Clearwater Bay Rd [now named Choi Hung Rd] beside the nullah.

Date picture taken


The truck was heading SW towards Boundary St and the plane was taking off from the northern end of the runway.  But then it could be a very tight landing (was this direction permitted?).  I saw those large pipes left on the ground by the fence for  a few weeks so this photo was taken in 1958 or about.
