Air Crashes HK 1950's
New on here having just found this lovely site.
Just come across this site and found it fascinating. I was living in HK - (Father worked at Hong Kong Electric Co North Point) -from Dec 1949 until Feb 1954. Dad left HK in 1967.
We lived in a flat on the corner of Kings Rd and watched a constant stream of police and ambulances going up and down most of the afternoon on a Saturday or Sunday some time in the summer of either 1950 or 1951. The following Monday morning aircraft engines were lined up on the pavement on the South of Kings Rd below Quarry Bay School,(where I was a pupil).
It appears that a passenger aircraft (think it was Indonesia or Jakata Airways?) flew into the hills somewhere above the school having just taken off from Kai Tak.
I have not been able to find any reference to this - maybe someone out there has details?
Thank you again for a most interesting site.
Living near Telford, UK.
