The nightly test-run of the Connie with many visitors present who came to watch this event. Unfortunately the #3 engine was refusing to cooperate, but it still was a great sight (and sound!). Many thanks to Willem for the superb day.

A true beauty, with the lovely detail of the Dutch flag on the propeller tips.
