After a few hours delay the big blue bird finally showed. I was already on my way home when my colleague called to say that it was 10 minutes out. I raced back and was luckily still in time to catch it. This photo was taken at the lowest point of the whole low-approach procedure. Every once in a while we used to get a KLM 747 for a low-approach as part of a post-maintenance checkflight.
This 744 was delivered KLM in September 1997 and is pictured here on very short final for rw08R after arriving from AMS. The plane was finally wfu in April 2019 and ferried to Teruel (TEV) for storage/scrapping.
