    I believe the third pic is Hainan island as the plane takes-off. Looks way too big to be Yongxing island.

    I agree. I think it is Hainan as it doesn't look like any part of Yongxing Island.

    A few more pictures of the flight, this time of the passengers.

    I hope they leave large chunks of the trees on Tree island intact. If they need more land they can easily reclaim it.
