United Boeing 747s were a common sight and sound in Hong Kong for more than 30 years I would say, from Kai Tak times to the current Chek Lap Kok airport. In fact, United have served Hong Kong with their Boeing 747 aircraft for so long that Hong Kong have seen the change of United's colour schemes from the Rainbow scheme, "Battleship Grey", Blue Tulip to the current Continental livery painted on their Boeing 747 aircraft, highlighting the transition of time as she serves the ever famous trans pacific flight from San Francisco to Hong Kong. Sadly, United have decided to bring forward the retirement of their Boeing 747s and have change the famous UA869/862 service from San Francisco to Hong Kong to the technologically advance Boeing 777-300ER in June this year, ending the daily Boeing 747 service for good. In addition, United officially phase out the Boeing 747s from their fleet after completing its last international flight from Seoul to San Francisco and last passenger flight from San Francisco to Honolulu last week. Yet, despite them leaving, the sights and sounds of these wonderful bird will be remembered and remain in the hearts of many in time to come!
