It's Belly Week on the EnoAeroPics gallery! This week every day an image will be uploaded of an aircraft photographed from down under, either from the patio of my home at 30 kilometers from Schiphol Amsterdam airport or from the 11 th floor of an apartment building near Schiphol. Discover the difference when looking up between the Fokker 100 and Bombardier/Canadair Regional Jet, the Boeing 777 and Airbus 330 and between the Airbus A320 family, the Embraer E-Jets and the Boeing 737. The aircraft were photographed with gear up in an almost clean configuration. Best photographic results were obtained when the aircraft were flying below 4000ft in clear air with relatively low temperatures to prevent a hazy shot caused by trembling air.
This image shows Boeing 777-35EER c/n 32644 (l/n 863) B-16717 of EVA Airways about to catch the glideslope of runway 27-09 at Schiphol Amsterdam airport in The Netherlands (EHAM) for its 4th visit to the airport on 18 August 2012, flying at 3600 ft with a speed of 185 kts, carrying out flight BR075 from Taipei via Bangkok. The aircraft made its first flight on 14 April 2010 and was delivered to EVA Air on 19 November 2011.
At first sight, the Airbus A330 and Boeing 777 look very similar, but the main distinguishing is the number of streamlined wingfairings, of which the 777 has three and the A330 four.
