You are flying in a 747 to VVTS, an airport in Vietnam, from RCTP, an airport in Taiwan. About 1 and a half hours into your flight, there was an issue with the fuel system that causes your aircraft to burn fuel 10 times faster than normal (this is a bug in IF that Laura forgot to fix during Beta). You knew you had to land at the nearest airport, so you decided to divert to Hong Kong. There is also a massive Typhoon happening in Hong Kong.
There are two major airports in the vicinity of Hong Kong. One being Chek Lap Kok (Hong Kong International) and the other being Kai Tak. You have to choose one airport to land in and you need to get the aircraft on the ground fast.
Kai Tak has two runways: 13 and 31. ATC will instruct you to land on Runway 13 no matter what. You cannot land on 31. If you choose to land here during the Typhoon, you have 90% chance of crashing onto the town and kill hundreds of lives.
Chek Lap Kok has 4 runways: 25L/7R and 25R/7L. If you choose to land here, ATC allows you to land on any runway you like. You will also have a great chance of landing at the airport successfully, but, you have 90% chance of skidding off the runway and slide into the terminals because the strong wind is blowing the 747.
If you are having a hard time choosing (or any confusions), here’s what you can think about before you choose:
-If you plan to land at Kai Tak, you can glide to the runway. But, you will still have a 90% chance of crasing.
-If you plan to land at Chek Lap Kok, you have to use your brakes to try to stop on the runway. Even if you stop, the wind will try to blow the aircraft to the terminal.
So, would you rather:
- Land at Kai Tak
- Land at Chek Lap Kok
