Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is one of Europe's top three gateways. It handled 71,053,157 passengers during 2018, along with 1,716,892 tonnes of cargo, on 499,466 arrivals and departures. The airport has a reputation for being welcoming to enthusiasts and its facilities include a large panoramic roof deck (which is closed until mid-summer due to renovation works elsewhere in the terminal) along with plentiful vantage points around the perimeter. Exhibits inside and outside the building include a complete Fokker 100 aircraft and the forward fuselage of a McDonnell Douglas DC-9 airliner. Tyler McDowell checks out the action from the Netherlands.
