A Boeing 747 at Eelde!

After the runway extension program at Groningen Airport Eelde was completed in 2013, widebodies were suddenly a possibility. However, due to reasons we weren’t able to properly receive them yet. Recently that all changed and earlier this week we received our first Boeing 747 for a full stop!

What a week!

What a week!

It’s been a while, but it’s time for another blog post. With the quality of the (air)traffic that I’ve been seeing the past week, I just had to write something. As you probably gathered by now I have a strong passion for aviation and whenever something cool/interesting/special is in the neighborhood, I will want to check it out. And recently I can’t complain at all! A breakdown (with photos at the end):

GAE runway extension: 1 year later!

On April 24 2013, the runway extension and new platform of Groningen Airport Eelde were completed. The airport re-opened at 06:30 in the morning following a 2 week closure, during which a large workforce worked around the clock to meet the above mentioned deadline. On the page linked below, I’m sharing my photos, videos and other media that was shot during the entire process. For many images, this will be the first time that they’re posted in public. Enjoy!
