Description

The "Flying F" on the front of the Hong Kong building on Hoi Bun Road was the brainstorm of expatriate plant engineering manager Jay Trepanier. Jay noticed that many Hong Kong buildings had neon signs on them and decided that Fairchild needed one also. As we were adjacent to and parallel with the Kaitak Airport runway, the logo would be seen by everyone who flew in or out. It proved to be great PR! Donated by Ed Pausa.
