I was invited by KLM to be on KLM's farewell flight number 2. I had to rush to the terminal after taking this picture to be checked in and have some time for spotting behind the security.
What a day it was!

Honduras government Embraer on approach
Very exotic and special visitor coming in to Le Bourget airport for the climate meeting in paris last november. The Air France 777 you see in the background just took off from the northern runway at Charles de Gaulle. The two airport are very close to each other.

KLM Boeing 777-300ER in new colors taking off for a destination in Azia.
Qatar dreamliner taking off
Only a few days are left to see the Qatar dreamliner at Schiphol. With the change to summertime, many airlines change their planes and frenquency. Qatar will start operating the much larger 777-300ER to Schiphol with almost 200% extra passenger. Reason for this is that they are not allowed to operate 2 flights a day by the dutch government.
My wife knows how to lift a plane
KLM 777-200 coming into runway 22. The shortest of all runways at Schiphol at 2000m. Due to it's close location to the fence the planes come over pretty low.
