If you follow our Instagram feed you will know that I had a tour of Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam yesterday.

I will do a separate article about the KLM-owned engine refurbishment business because I think you’ll find it interesting.  However, I also wanted to share the short video below.

I got to watch the airport fire brigade practicing on their training aircraft.  As you can see below, it was impressive.  Because Schiphol is so big, it needs to have three fire stations due to the requirement to be able to reach any part of the site within three minutes.  There are 150 full time firefighters employed to provide 24/7 coverage across the sites.

If you are reading this on mobile the video may not show. See it on YouTube here.
