Namesake of Kai Tak Airport
The airport was named after two personages - Ho Kai (何啟) and Au Tak (區德) who together with several other prominent businessmen in Hong Kong formed the Kai Tak Investment Company in 1922 for the purpose to reclaim land in Kowloon for development. Part of the land was acquired by the government for use as an airfield after the business plan failed.
