SCHIPHOL - A Boeing 747 of Polar Air Cargo currently blocks the Polderbaan at Schiphol. After an aborded take-off around 13:00 PM Local Time, multiple tires exploded. It is unknown for how long the plane will block the runway.

According to a spokes person of the Schiphol Group, the plane can impossibly be removed because of the damage to the landing gear. Currently, they are investigating how to remove the plane from the runway.

Obviously the Polderbaan (the fifth runway) is closed for traffic. Other runways are used.

No more info available so far

Amsterdam newsbroadcaster AT5 hasn't changed its info:

http://www.at5.nl/teletekst.asp?page=188&subpage=2

They show Polderbaan ((18R) for landing, this morning too. So why did the Polar use it for take-off? Supposedly today they're using Kaagbaan (24) and Aalsmeerbaan (18L) for take-offs?

Plane involved is N534MC. It bursted 13 tires during RTO. There is damage to the runway 18R-36L. It suffered a hydraulic failure resulting in the loss off control of the nose gear. I'm glad nobody was injured.

...follow his instructions, switch off at the stand.

Any pics yet, and what do you mean by damage to the runway.

It was a high-energy rejected take-off, with less than 400 m remaining of the 3800m available. It look slike the aircraft was quite heavy with the take-off rejecteion initiated just prior to V1. At least two tires totally destroyed to the rim. Could be a tire failure that initiated the hydraulic failure? There was quite some fluids on the runway [presumably hydraulics].

When the airplane stopped, it was quite a bit off the centerline to the left, but the crew did manage to keep it on the tarmac with all [remaining] wheels. Good job!


Got some pics, but don't know if they are upto Anet standards, weather wasn't too great . . .

When I left at around 17.00 [5 pm], KLM crew had just started replacing the tires. Work was already ongoing to repair the runway-infrastructure.

Kind Regards

Wow, too bad I wasn;t there. I'll ask my ex-colleagues at PO about what happened. I used to work for PO at SPL until June of this year. I wonder what the cause was for this rejected take-off.

Thanks for sharing the info!  Smile
