Schiphol 041112_7 by ReneHenckens Schiphol 041112_7 by ReneHenckens
KLM McDonnell Douglas MD-11 "Marie Curie"
Flight KL 0606 arriving from San Fransisco. Touching down rwy 18R

The weather was very poor this day, but I'm kinda happy with this outcome. I'm definitely going to try this again on a nice, sunny day.
But for now, you'll have to do with this one :P

Great capture and interesting view!

Do you perhaps know which flights are still being flown with MD11s at the moment?

I believe they still fly AMS-YUL and AMS-LAX
But KL also services LAX with the 744 and 77W.

Those two are the only ones I know of. I'll see if I can find out a bit more.
In the mean time: thanks for faving :)

I had actually considered flying KLM for this year's USA trip, but wasn't able to determine whether there'd be trijet action or not. :XD:

You're very welcome! :)

I've often wondered how the lift and drag forces that are generated on slats and flaps are transmitted into the central section of the wing. The connecting rods and rails are looking so fragile.

It is indeed incredible to see. I'll see if next time I can get a better shot of the flaps and connecting rods.
And there are more things that look incredibly fragile (landing gear and engine mountings for instance)

and of course: thanks again :P
