On a flight from Basel to Amsterdam I flew over the port of Rotterdam during sunset. You can see the part called Maasvlakte just above the wing. It's the entrance of a lot of cargo to central Europe. This was probably my first and last flight on a Fokker 70 since they'll be retired at the end of October. It will be a sad day, because it's the last piece of dutch aviation history flying in Holland.
KLM departing for another big trip.
This is a 747 in the new livery. It will be here for a few more years while most of the other KLM 747's are being phased out.
Qatar 777 departing
Because winter time has started, Qatar's daily departure is approximately 1 hour before sunset. A few clouds in the sky make some nice sunrays and color the spray behind the wheels.
Creating it's own cloud
A KLM on departure from runway 24 at Schiphol while turning eastbound. The position of the sun and humidity in the air create this wonderful condensation over the wings of the plane.
Paris le Bourget airport overview
This week a climate summit was held in Paris. Many world leaders came to Le Bourget airport. From the hotel I stayed in you could get this view :)
National airlines cargo at Schiphol
Crossing the canal in not very ideal weather. I like this livery a lot since it's not another white airplane with a colored tail, but a complete livery which includes the entire plane.
Oman Royal flight departing Geneva.
Someone of the Royal family of Oman visited EBACE in Geneva with one of their 747's.
The mighty AN-124 finally visited our airport again.
If i remember correctly, 2 years ago was the last visit of an Antonov 124 to Schiphol. I was very delighted to hear this one would visit in 2018! It departs on a sunny spring afternoon.
Deplaning an Enter air Boeing 737-800 after landing at EHRD
It operated a charter flight from Girona to Rotterdam for the Grand Prix of Spain. Arrival in Rotterdam was long after sunset, but luckily not all the light was gone yet. The apron lights illuminate the plane quite nicely!
The queen of the skies
Returning from a transatlantic mission, this KLM is putting its wheels down very gently on a beautiful summer morning.
The owner of Dassault, MR Serge Dassault recently passed away. Last week I visited EBACE 2018 in Geneva and was able to look inside most Falcon planes for the first time after 3 years of being at EBACE. What a beautiful product he brought on the market!
Swiss special colored CS-300
Swiss has painted one of their Bombardier CS-300 series in a very special color scheme.
It really stand out to most of the special paintings on planes.

A dreamliner is coming home after a transatlantic flight. The fog was just starting to lift creating a great effect.

A SAS CRJ-900 is approaching the famous Polderbaan
After a beautiful winters day the clouds were lit up incredibly by the sun on this day. The pink color of the clouds is quite remarkable. After landing this SAS CRJ-900 needs about 20 minutes to taxi to the gate, because of the long distance from the Polderbaan to the terminal.
KLM 737 departing from Schiphol
Right after sunset, this KLM 737 departs the Polderbaan at Schiphol for another European roundtrip.
Airbus 330 coloring the sky
In perfect conditions, the A330 is always the best plane to make vortex, condensation and cloudbursts.
In some beautiful evening light this Etihad 777 is being spotted by many aviation enthousiasts from the official Schiphol spotting place.
With runway 18C out of use due to maintenance, runway 27 becomes the second inbound runway during rush hours, providing good opportunities for sunset pictures.
