Remark Photographer
PH-BFR / FR-035 (cn 27202/1014) "KL868 execute missed approach". I was watching a NWA DC-10 landing and I saw a KLM 747 close behind it. I was already thinking hmm not a lot of clearance. When the DC-10 landed I was already tracking the 747 and when I saw her come overhead I noticed the DC-10 still had not vacated the runway! Shortly after I heard the KLM give full throttle commencing its missed approach. Spectacular to see how fast it can climb! You can clearly see the DC-10 still on the runway. Note photo taken at Rwy 18R. [EF100-400mm]

Great spotting location and the photo is perfectly framed.
The 747 looks great from any angle.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 2, 2011:
Technically, an aircraft operating on an IFR flight plan can be told to "go around" as opposed to "execute missed approach". If an aircraft is flying a visual approach and tower needed to break off the approach for whatever reason, it would be told to "go around" and it would receive further instructions from tower and/or approach control or center, as there is no such thing as a published missed approach procedure on a visual approach. If, however, the aircraft were flying a procedure, such as an ILS, where a published missed existed they would be told to execute the missed.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 2, 2011:
You don't even need to say anything here. The photo tells its own story on this aborted landing!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 1, 2011:
To the previous poster regarding Go-arounds, With planes operating under IFR (all airliners) it is considered a missed approach and will be stated as such in communications. Go-around is used with planes operating under VFR. Execution procedures depend on the airport and runway(s) in use.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri September 16, 2011:
Very nice to see a missed approach,

Beautiful Capture

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 31, 2011:
Great shot! Really captures the two aircraft beautifully and I love the position the 747 is in!

The graceful rio de janeiro. I like the kl744 it is one of the prettiest 747 around.klm still has about 26 744 a/c.active until 2016 at least when the foxtrot alpha is 25 years old.

Amazing

Going around. . . Flight arrival delayed. .

I couldn't agree anymore with the comment below mine.

A visitor from - posted Tue June 9, 2009:
It's amazing that something so huge like the 747 looks so graceful at the same time. You can have your 777s and 380s, etc., nothing does it for me like the 747.

A visitor from Argentina posted Mon December 1, 2008:
Exellent Shot!!
Poor pilot of the 744
:)

A visitor from Italy posted Mon December 1, 2008:
Extraordinary!! i'm thinking about the sensations of passenger...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed October 22, 2008:
@ the visitor from great britain, yes, 18R or 36L is also known as the Polderbaan.

I Like the shot, nice to see the DC-10 at the runway.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 13, 2008:
The thick overcast makes the Boing 747 look as if it is flying into the unknown

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue December 18, 2007:
Nice!

is 18R aka Polderbaan?

A visitor from Singapore posted Thu November 15, 2007:
Rare picture!

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 14, 2007:
Love it! love how you can see how flat the runway is. (don't you just love the growl of that cf6 at full power)

A visitor from Australia posted Tue November 6, 2007:
The runway is really spectacular with its lights and all, good view of the plane.

A visitor from Australia posted Wed October 31, 2007:
There is only one word for this shot, and that is PERFECT.
Love everything, the lighting on the 747, the position, the situation, the runway - everything!
Long live the 747, she really is the queen of the skies, always is and always will be. 5 stars!

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat June 23, 2007:
Nice shot!
Is the fact of the runway being under the see level any related with its flatness?

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed April 11, 2007:
Beautiful shot. And they got the runway that flat because all of Holland is that flat :)

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 30, 2007:
The lighting and everything in the pic is awesome!
Gawd, how did they get the rwy that flat?

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Fri December 8, 2006:
I can feel the power of the engines. It's really amazing - especially with the great lightening! Superb!

A visitor from Indonesia posted Thu November 16, 2006:
Amazing... rare event

A visitor from Uruguay posted Tue November 7, 2006:
Excellent angle, the B-747 looks beautiful.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 30, 2006:
What a amazing luck to capture a photo of a "missed approach".Not being in the biz,I could only imagine what I've been reading,now I know ! Thanks Nick,and A.net.

A visitor from India posted Tue July 4, 2006:

I JUST LIKE IT

A visitor from Germany posted Sat April 22, 2006:
I give 5 stars for the right moment. Almost another runway incursion. One of the biggest problems in ATC.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed April 19, 2006:
Just a nice photo!!!!! Incredible experience you had. Wish to be there.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun April 16, 2006:
Woow spectacular....!

A visitor from - posted Mon March 20, 2006:
I've always wanted to be on a missed approach plane. I just want to be thrown back into my seat and hear the roar of the engines once more. And I have always wanted to fly of the 747! I mean who hasn't!!! ;-)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun March 5, 2006:
Beautiful

A visitor from Spain posted Sun March 5, 2006:
Spectacular!!!

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Wed January 18, 2006:
I think is a beautiful shot because it shows the Jumbo jet going around. Not very often this happens. In this case was due to the other traffic remaining on the runway. There is a nice contrast between the colors of sky and the color of the 747. It also shows the power of the 747 lifting all its own weight without any problems.

A visitor from Norway posted Sat January 14, 2006:
Well observed and well done, and I don´t mean the pilots, nor the flight control, who should have acted earlier. What rules apply here??! PE Norway

A visitor from Greece posted Mon January 9, 2006:
Great moment,not only because th photographer caught a "missed approach" but mostly because it's jumbo executing it!!!Fine picture!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue January 3, 2006:
Great Shot! I bet the pilots of the 747 had a few choice words for the tower controller!

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Tue December 27, 2005:
Very nice and also thanks for description

Nice photo!!! Looks like a movie clip, it's so good! Congratulations!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed December 21, 2005:
Nice shot. BTW this is NOT a missed approach but a GO AROUND.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon December 19, 2005:
Hey Nicky! Sweet composition and timing! Too bad we can't hear the 747 screaming ;-) Groeten, en tot ziens! TvP -GreenBaron

A visitor from United States posted Sun December 18, 2005:
Outstanding shot ... reminds me of a BA 747 go around I saw at LHR a couple of years back, as a 737 was late vacating the runway ... this great bird looming out of the cloudbase, gear and flaps down...

A visitor from Chile posted Sat December 17, 2005:
I`m a flight attendant for Lan and the same thing happen to us 2 years ago at JFK. It was amazing the powerful engines sound.

A visitor from Denmark posted Fri December 16, 2005:
That is good and the lights is amusing

A visitor from Denmark posted Fri December 16, 2005:
That is so gode and the lights is amising

A visitor from Canada posted Fri December 16, 2005:
Great picture!! And having a description of the situation makes it even better. Thanks!!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 15, 2005:
Good decision by KLM!!! It looks to me like the NWA still has spoilers deployed so she is not even close to vacating the runway.

A visitor from Norway posted Thu December 15, 2005:
Nice with several planes in one picture

A visitor from - posted Tue December 13, 2005:
Beautiful shot. Perfect lighting, both natural and otherwise.

Fantastic!! Nearly airlining !!!!!

A visitor from India posted Mon December 12, 2005:
Really good

A visitor from United States posted Mon December 12, 2005:
I like this picture because of the lighting and the airplane at the other end of the runway and also because I would like to be a pilot and like airplanes

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun December 11, 2005:
Nice photo, I saw it from the other side going around on that day. It is rwy 06.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun December 11, 2005:
WOW! Amazing photograph with great lighting.

A visitor from Finland posted Sun December 11, 2005:
WOW WOW!!!

That photo is amazing!!! Good job!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun December 11, 2005:
Nice picture! I'm also very curious what runway this is. It's most definitely not the "Kaagbaan (06)", because you don't see the office buildings (WTC) in the background.
If I have to guess it's one of the 18/36 RWY's.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Sun December 11, 2005:
Very rare ... fantastic photo ! How steep KLM climbed.

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 9, 2005:
Extremely clear and shows you a rare occurrence.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri December 9, 2005:
The passengers on that plane must have been wondering what the hell was going on!!!

A visitor from Finland posted Fri December 9, 2005:
This is good. I once had to do this too (I fly Finnair A319), but it was a reindeer instead of an a/c.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri December 9, 2005:
What a drag for the 747 pilots to do a go-around. Was this shot taken from the runway they use to call "the Kaagbaan"?

A visitor from Germany posted Fri December 9, 2005:
Very nice moment captured during this special go-around!

A visitor from Moldova, Republic Of posted Fri December 9, 2005:
This is a very cool picture indeed :). I love it so MUCH...

Hey man, that is a great photo. Although you dont say in which runway it happened I´m sure you really enjoyed it.

Airliners.Net shown softly on top of this photo!! I like the way it does, prevent other to copy without asking photographers permission to use in other ways.

Boeing 747 is indeed great - I wish, though, that Boeing would make an even bigger and more spectacular aircraft in the future. Maybe they will...

A visitor from India posted Thu December 8, 2005:
This really is a fabulous shot. Look at the jumbo lift off. The pilots should have put in a lot of effort to put the bird on flight again after a missed approach. As an airline employee i know how much relieved the cockpit crew would be after pulling away...gbala

Great Pic Passengers must have been very happy to lose 15min above AMS. Congratulations to the ATC controller.

One of the finest photos i've seen on airliners, love the 747 under full power, flying dirty, wish i could catch some action of this live, definately a picture worth a thousand words.

Rare to see a photo of two jumbos in a "go around" situation.

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 8, 2005:
I like the way you focused, not just on the 747 but that you are able to get a sense of depth with the dc 10 still in the pic... awesome!!!

I always love shots of runways when they're all lit up like that. Also, it's cool to see the 747 climbing like that. A great picture of an old American design and an equally impressive newer one.

A visitor from Mexico posted Thu December 8, 2005:
Woooow perfect picture!!

What great pic.!
what a great timing!

Perfect picture of this moment! Both jets & runway captured. I can even hear the roaring engines ;)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed December 7, 2005:
That is fantastic to see! Of course go arounds happen every day but a nice example of a plane still on the runway and a nice 747 going around :)
