Teletext also mentions that "only" the nosewheel is of the runway. Passengers deboarded via stairs.

Wonder if it happened during the landing or during the runwayexit...normally they land at the polderbaan with no reversers and let the aircraft roll until the last exit...that would be a perfect to slide of the taxiway....

According to luchtvaartnieuws.nl (dutch only) there were 190 passengers on board.

The aircraft (737-900) left the runway or taxitrack immediately after landing around 1130 lt; landing took place during a heavy downpour, aquaplaning seems to be the most likely cause. Nobudy got heard the passengers brought to the terminal by bus. Flight was KL1002 from LHR.

According personal sources at the local fire brigade (don't take it official please) the aircraft was hit by lightning when reversing speed on the runway. This caused failure of operational systems on board?!
At the moment I took some pictures, also a smaller tornado was around the place. So you can understand that the weather was really serious this morning at AMS.

I can easily imagine how a lightning strike would cause this. I hope the pax didnt freak out.

Bet those passengers aren't feeling to lucky. All the aggro at LHR and then to come off the runway at AMS. Looks like someone didn't want them to get home  biggrin 

Glad everyone's ok, doesn't look like it came too far off the runway.

Oh, hi. Just think of the AF accident at YYZ last year! I'd be feeling quite lucky to know my flight was safe and vetted and that all I had to do was pull a run in my stockins to deboard!  Wow!

Must have been a dramatic moment, but I'm really glad that everyone is ok. It seems that the pilot did his best as the airplane seems to have little to no damage and just got off the runway by the nosewheel.

The only advantage I see is that now passengers won't have to wait such a long time taxiing to/from the Polderbaan to the terminal  Wink

Actually my first thought regarding the picture was like:

"ok! i'm going in reverse, tell me before I hit something!"

haha

Reply no.6 gives the answer,
but let's mention again that everybody (pax and crew) got out safely and without injuries by using stairs.
The aircraft has been removed from her position and is now in the maintenance area. The runway 18R-36L is back in service at Saturday evening.



"The whole world steps aside for the man who knows where he is going"
25 A342 : How can this be the case when the non-ER 739 may only take 189 ? Maybe total of 190 persons on board ?
26 SK601 : Could be 4 things: 1. 190 = pax+crew (total SOB 190) 2. 190= 189 pax + 1 non-rev on a jumpseat (+crew=total SOB 196) 3. 190= pax + no-seat occupying
27 A342 : Ah thanks, I didn't think about infants. The load factor must have been stunning.
28 Chiuaua : It were 190 passengers +7 crew, thus totalling 197 souls (info from teletext)...
29 KC135TopBoom : Glad no body got hurt...................................
30 Elite : I just returned from AMS via a KLM B747-400 2 days ago... pretty scary.
31 Post contains images BoeingOnFinal : No no no.... "Hey, can we get som friggin coffie up here, I am really stressed!" Wierd how they didn't go to alternate, when the weather was that bad
32 PHKLM : Sorry, but this sounds really pathetic. As you can see on the pictures the plane just missed a turn at a very low speed, it hardly deserves a name. W
33 Jwenting : morning flights from London are always packed. In fact, most flights from London are packed, at peak times the switch from 737s to larger aircraft li
34 Sky : Specially due to BA that cancelled all flight from and to AMS from LHR. Day before yesterday a MD-11 flew the route AMS - LHR -AMS.
35 HB-IWC : KL1007/1008 was operated by the MD11 on August 10 because of the cancelation of a couple of services during the day after the terrorism related event
36 Lamedianaranja : Don't worry please! Thankfully nothing serious happened. I'm sure the passengers were scared (I would be) but I trust KLM's crew to have handled this
