"Adriaan van Ostade" arrives from Dublin on the through schedule to Schiphol. Visible is the 1938-built Chance Brothers octagonal floodlight, one of three in use until early wartime. The three sides facing the grass landing area were clear glazed. Two of the floodlights would be illuminated for night landings. They were dismantled in the early 1950s.
