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 Airbus A330-303 c/n 1294 PH-AKB "Piazza Navona - Roma", a recent addition to the fleet of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, just after take-off from runway 27-09 of Schiphol Amsterdam airport in The Netherlands (EHAM) to carry out flight KL0589 to Accra on 15 August 2012. The aircraft made its first flight on 20 February 2012 as F-WWKK and was delivered to KLM on 20 March 2012.
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.
