Good to see the planes plaza again, a unique area in my opinion. Canon EOS600D Rebel T3i [EF38-135mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS]

Is the landing gear nearly as tall at the 2/3 of the fuselage? seems way to large to me. maybe my perceptions are just off

It's the landing gear of a DC-10

The landing gear is an ex-DC10 one, the fuselage is a former DC9

Nice to see a DC-9 in the current KLM colours (in which the -9s never flew by the way). Although KLM had lots of DC-9-30s, this particular example never served KLM.
To the visitor below: I believe that the landing gear strut in the background is from a DC-10, just like the engine cowling behind. This scene is a nice illustration of the long lasting KLM-Douglas commercial relation.

Well, the landing gear itself is from a DC-10 as is the engine cowling in the background; there's nothing wrong with your perception. ;)

The landing gear and the front part of the fuselage belong do different airplanes. The DC-9 gear is much smaller.

Can we be allowed to enter in the cockpit and enjoy it?

Nice to see where some old wrecks end up. The lighting is very good.
