Flaring 737 at KLM hub 20092012
Boeing 737-8K2 c/n 29598 (l/n 639) PH-BXK named "Gierzwaluw/Swift" of KLM Royal Dutch Airlines flaring in the rain above runway 27-09 at Schiphol Amsterdam airport in The Netherlands (EHAM) on 20 September 2012. There are three control towers visible in this image. Just in front of the tail the Ground Control tower is partially visible, the one in the middle is the former ATC tower, which turned out to be too low as the new buildings surrounding the tower became much higer, the one on the right is the current ATC tower, literally towering over the field. Various KLM aircraft are standing on the platform, including an A330 and 747, with a 737 of KLM daughter Transavia to the left of BXK. On the visitors panorama terrace between the two towers stands retired Fokker 100 PH-OFE, which is now in use as a Schiphol information stand. PH-BXK made its first flight on 8 August 2000 and was delivered to KLM on 13 September 2000.
