Photos of the Oldies

This page contains photos taken long time ago. We hope that these photos can remind us the good old days of R/C soaring here in Hong Kong; in particular, we had safer flying sites; no need to worry about being robbed, friendly people around, fresh air, unpolluted landscape and beautiful scenery......

These photos were sent by Barry Kwong now living in Canada. Barry was a very active r/c pilot in HK back to the days of 1980. You can see him in the photo on the right holding the R/C Blue Bird. If you recognize him, give him an email for an old time re-connection

These pictures were sent by Michael Womersley from England. Michael spent almost 40 years living here in Hong Kong from 1957 to 1995. His past time favour during the 70's and 80's was to fly R/C sailplanes in Hong Kong's slopes. He also had interest in power flights later on. If you do remember him, he has a Chinese name WONG Maan Lei, give him an email at
