But there is not just a Fokker 27 at Eindhoven! EHEH is the main base for the Netherlands Air Force! Unfortunately there was only one movement inhalf of 30min. The Welshap Airport has also a big number of LLC Airlines! No matter if Ryanair, Wizz Air or Transavia.

Amsterdam - Schiphol (AMS / EHAM)

Let's start the Amsterdam part blue - Royal Blue or better said Royal Dutch Airlines!

Immediately after the arrival appeared everywhere on the highway police and special forces of the Federal Police of the Netherlands. We followed the car and it has issued mr that a supposedly aircraft hijacking was present. After evacuation it turns out that only the radio contact with the tower of Schiphol was demolished. The Polderbaan was completely closed for more than 3 hours.

All passengers escaped the aircraft safely. The aircraft was pulled towards a apron position near the E-Pier.

 

The flight backwards to Malága was cancelled.

But Amsterdam has five more runways! No prob if one of them is closed. We continued spotting. Blue - White - Red, The national flag of the Netherlands! Just nice.
