KLM 90 years – Open House

Saturday, October 3rd, 2009

KLM is celebrating its 90 years anniversary this year and they organized an Open House for all personell at Schiphol airport this weekend. That meant that Kissy got tickets for Robbert and me. Rob and Stefanie would come too, but couldn’t make it since Rob broke his ankle last weekend…:(. KLM does this every five years, so it was my third time ‘backstage’ at the airport. And again it was special to take a look into KLM’s ‘kitchen’.
One of the highlights was the opportunity to see the only still flying Douglas DC-2 ‘Uiver’. That was the airplane that won the 1934 London-Melbourne race, one of the greatest events in the dutch air history!
