  • Quote from Wikipedia: The first privately owned airport in Hong Kong was located in Sha Tin. On 18 March 1911, the aeroplane of the Belgian pilot, Charles den Bron, successfully took off at the airport in Sha Tin on an aeroplane named Spirit of Sha Tin (沙田精神號). It was the first aeroplane that took off from the territory, using Kai Tak airport. A replica of the aircraft is hung at the new Chep Lap Kok airport above the arrivals hall.
