Sealed Planes at HKG Gate

I took a couple of these photos about 5 weeks ago while in HKG. Interesting to see how they sealed these planes sitting at the gates.

Those are short term seals to prevent the buildup of humidity.

More like mid-term at this rate.

Also saw the same scene last week while being shuttle bused back to T1 from Midfield. Quite a sad state to see all the CX/KA/HX planes all grounded.

Thanks bagold for sharing these!

Maybe they will soon be sent to Alice Springs. Better sleep quality with less noise and less rusting.
