After touch-down of the first KLM A330 at AMS, the plane was escorted to its parking spot by quite some vehicles.

Yep! No expenses spared... Was the pope on board by any chance? Or is KLM just a good customer of Schiphol? ;-)

Must have been a very strong headwind to land that short on this runway! Hence all the vehicles in front of the A330, their task was to build a wall to deflect some of the strong headwind. Taxing at full power is not very fuel-economic. ;)
Serious, very impressive picture, this bird has almost the wingspan ratio of a sailplane, looks very elegant! Nice picture of a great aircraft and airline.

Nice to see that KLM finally chooses the Airbus strategy on their east coast USA routes, I think they will be thrilled with the low fuel efficiency of this bird! Welcome to Amsterdam Oscar Alpha!

Great shot! I'm glad that KLM get rid of their crappy 767s and use A330 instead!

Wow! Exceptional good photo.

You really nailed the wingspan with this pic. Awesome shot. And it's cool to finally see the A330 in KLM colors. I hope to see many more KLM A330 shots in the future as good as this one.

Fanatstic shot, could't have put the honour of having a new KLM a330 at AMS in a better perspective! Great that those vehicles escort this masterpiece to the parking stand. Astonishing new aircraft with the colours it deserves. *flightsimmer*

Awsome aircraft!!
looks great in klm-blue.
history was made with this shot for the klm-fleet.
its first a330.
lets hope it will be in service for a while so we can enjoy this aircraft just by seeing it fly over our heads. (and hopefully board it once)
for me that can happen every day seeng as i live near to Amsterdam Intnernational Schiphol.
Good luck klm with this aircraft!!!
