(Video) Boeing 777-200ER KLM - Touch & Go Valentine's Day
A Boeing 777-200ER KLM aircraft offered a gift to the spotter on Valentine's Day, a nice Touch & GO at Groningen Airport in Eelde, North Holland.
Boeing 777-200ER (PH-BQO) KLM is 8.1 years old. Joined the KLM fleet on 30 January 2007. The aircraft is powered by two GE90-94B engines. It is configured in 3 classes: 35 of seats in Business Class, 34 of seats in Premium Economy and 249 of seats in Economy Class.
Procedure of Touch & Go is a common one among pilots, but it is not abused. In the example above, it is clear that it was a training procedure. The aircraft only reached the runway with the rear train and then gained altitude, the engines being fully engineered. Such procedures may also occur when the pilots observe that they cannot operate a complete landing for various reasons and prefer to reposition the aircraft for a full stop landing.
