Although we can find the information of this airport but it is in English that is so difficult for us to read it.Also the time of doing this project is not enough so we must do it as quite as we can.

Comments §Yim Ho Wing Before I did this project, I had not known anything about the history of Kai Tak Airport; but after I did it, I could know more about it.When my group members and I wanted to find the information bout this topic, we found a lot of difficulties for finding them. But at last, we could solve those problems by discussion. And we needed to find it for a long time by using the books information and going through Internet. At last, I think the time allowed is quite short, if we had at least one month, I think we may do it better.
