That is Cathy Pacific.  The aircraft appears to be an older 747, possible a 747-300...

That is the now closed Kai Tak Airport, Hong Kong.  The famous checkerboard approach airport.

Here are some great Vids of Kai Tak. The two videos of landing at Kai Tak were actually filmed on board Cathy Pacific B747's, enjoy!!  8-)

It's too bad that they closed this airport...I was going to move there when I retired and get an apartment with a balcony facing the airport so I could sit there all day and watch all the big heavies pass by right next to me...

Then again....not really....I'll just watch your videos instead...would be interesting though  :-)
