Above Hong Kong Island and how it came to be

On one particular chilly December morning – after weeks of waiting for the right conditions – members of the Above Hong Kong Island photography team received the call. The call that the time had come. It was time to wrap up warm and make their way to the The China Clipper, an exclusive lounge located on the 30th floor of the The Peninsula Hong Kong.

The sky was clear and blue, and the sun was shining. A better day for aerial photography might not have come again for weeks. The doors of the helicopters were then removed to provide unobstructed views and the team’s eight cameras were then prepped and readied for take off.

With the team safely aboard, they were up in the air and zooming around the area. Thanks to the kind partnership to the talented Helicopter specialists at HeliServices.

Special features of Above Hong Kong Island
