Far East Trip Day 6 – Taipei Songshan and Taoyuan 10-10-19

Thursday 10th October. It was another fine morning at Haneda but I was moving on. I was flying with China Airlines to Taipei Songshan. Whilst in the international terminal at Haneda I managed to read a few of the biz off on the far side. I heard my name announced and made my way to the desk for some pre-screening prior to departure (proof of onward flight out of Taiwan etc). This completed I boarded the flight shortly after. Pretty soon and we were airborne from runway 05 en-route. Flight time was 3 hours and the service in economy was pretty good with a decent hot meal served.

There was also some good IFE and before long we were descending into Taipei. On taxy in, we passed a hanger with government Beech 1900’s and although I took a snap on my phone, I couldn’t tie any up. The Government B737 was also parked up and was easily read. the flight had arrived at approx 09:30 and like other Asian airports it was a breeze through immigration and I was upstairs on the viewing terrace in no time. The viewing deck is open air with a small covered section which was a little hot and sticky given the temp in the low 30’s and humidity. I read off what I could then left the terminal buying some supplies on the way. My destination was a multi storey car park on the Minzu East Road. This car park gives good views over arriving traffic and is south of the centreline so has good light most of the day. It took about 30 minutes to reach the car park  on foot and on the ground floor is a large market. About halfway into the building on the left is a lift and stair well. The lift only went to the 4th floor so it was a case of walking up the final flight of steps to the 5th (top) floor. You then walk past some offices before emerging into the car park. The front of the car park is open air and there were about half a dozen local photographers already here. Today was the country’s anniversary of its separation from China and there were Chinooks carrying large flags circling the city. A little later there was a fly past of some Mil jets none of which I managed to ID. Traffic was quite brisk into SongShan but mainly the same Uni Air ATR’s which were in and out. the main draw was the FAT MD82’s which are still operating from here. 4 different aircraft were seen (one of which was minus engines). I stayed until about 2:30pm before walking back to the terminal to catch the bus number 1840 to Taipei Taoyuan. The journey was about 40 minutes and once at TPE I took the shuttle bus to the Novotel, which was going to be home for my final 2 nights. I had booked an executive suite which gave access to the lounge which served free food and alcohol between 6pm and 8pm, and soft drinks and snacks at other times which was very useful. I was given room 952 which gave an excellent view across the airfield. The new cross taxyways are right in front of the hotel and offer good photo opportunities (although through glass). The window at the end of the corridor also gave good views of landing aircraft although glass distortion was a problem for photos.  A nice mix of traffic at TPE with lots of mainland Chinese flights.
