Aborted Take Off Kalitta Air 747 AMS RWY 36L

Thu Jun 30, 2005 8:14 pm

Hi everyone.

Yesterday evening I went down to Schiphol to do some photo shooting and decided I would goto runway 36L as that was the departure runway.
When arriving there I saw a Kalittia 747 (Reg: N717CK) at the far end of the runway. The fire brigade where there with flashing lights. That weren't a lot
of people around so I could ask anybody what happend.
Like I said it came to a stand still right at the end of the runway so I think it just made the stop on time.

Does anyone know what happened??

Here is a photo of it being towed back.
