This morning, Turkish Airlines flight 1951, a Boeing 737, made what appears to be a forced landing in a field 1.5 nm short of runway 18R at Schipol. Most of the passengers survived, but there were nine fatalities:
I visited Schiphol for the second time in 2006. It was simple, fast, and well-organized, with virtually no waiting time for customs. Easy and inexpensive to get into Amsterdam (or to other parts of Holland) by rail. Coming from North America, you're far better connecting here than Heathrow for visiting the continent.
I often visit this airport, and I always feel comfortable, since everything is well-organised. There has been a period that to passing security check-in took long cueing, but that also seems to be resolved by now.
