Why is a KLM Jet on Top of an Airport Terminal?

Terminal U: Passengers flying into Amsterdam Schiphol may be wondering why a passenger jet is parked on the roof of the airport terminal.

The flight crew of the KLM Cityhopper Fokker 100 did not mistake the roof for the runway.

In fact, the jet retired last year and was donated to the airport by KLM. It has since become a permanent museum attraction, open to the public on the roof of the Panorama Terrace: a viewing platform attracting nearly 1.5 million visitors every year.

Visitors have the chance to view the cockpit, listen to announcements from the air traffic control tower and sit in the original passenger seats.
