DC3 At Schiphol?!

Welcome


The time has finally come, I had time to spot a special. And not just any special, but a 77 year old Douglas DC-3.

Yesterday evening I was browsing on scramble.nl, and noticed that a DC-3 was due to land the day after. I immediately started planning today’s trip, and here I am.

The DC-3 came from Gilze-Rijen Air Base in Southern Holland and circled over the airport a couple of times before landing on runway 04. This runway does not have any good spotting areas, so I was camped out at the hangar where it was due. Enjoy!

Beautiful bird! Over 80 years after the DC-3’s first flight, she’s still going strong.

That is a very unusual visitor to the Netherland’s busiest airport. Nice catch Rian! 👍

and yet I haven’t heard an engine of a DC3 yet.
