Engine runs and wing folding during a nightly event organized for the Friends of the Aviodrome. The total darkness around the aircraft and the movement of the wings gives this picture something mysterious.

Great shot! But please restore her in her old colors! That ROC sticker and KLM livery are a pain to the eyes.. She deserves better then that!

Nice clear detailed foto. Brings back memories from when I was a student at the NLC (Dutch Aviation Academy). This aircraft was for student mechanics to practise on. Once blew the lid of a pressurized external fueltank right through the left wing while I was checking the fuel lines on engine no 1.
