PH-BQF / QF-006 (cn 29398/474) The first Triple to sport the new "KLM Asia" titles. More 777's will be outfitted with "Asia" titles in the coming weeks/months. What is also extraordinary about this photo is that they actually touched the runway!! We get the KLM T7's regularly now after maintenance, because a low approach is part of the test flight. This is the first time however that they actually touch the runway, amazing!

I really miss that crown from the original KLM logo, but it is a great shot.

Nice shot of a landing gear configuration that is not seen during daily use. A free fall (emergency)landing gear test must have been performed before this touch and go. In such a case the doors stay open until the gear is being retracted again.

I was thinking the same ting. Hydraulic test, as well?

A visitor from France posted Mon February 27, 2012:
Quite unique sight of a touch and go with all gear doors open!

Lovely close-up!

Right you are, I have not seen a touch and go with open gear bays before. Certainly not on a T7.

A visitor from - posted Sun February 26, 2012:
Looks like they used the landing gear "freefall".

A visitor from Belgium posted Sun February 26, 2012:
Open gear bay doors is what I noticed too...well spotted & great shot!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun February 26, 2012:
Great action photo. The open gear doors are because they have to test the gravity drop after maintenance.

The KLM Asia mod clearly consisted of painting over the 'crown' on KLM (as can be seen from the blue splodge) and sticking 'Asia' titles underneath!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun February 26, 2012:
I thought that too! Why would that be?? Retracting or extending the gear already? Weird..

A visitor from - posted Sun February 26, 2012:
I find all the gear doors being open curious as well.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sun February 26, 2012:
Please KLM, bring back the crown. Don't get fooled by dumb world politics and bring back that VOC attitude (the Dutch will understand).

Nevertheless, great picture and nice to have the first shot.

Touch 'n go with open gear bay doors? Strange...
