the wonderful, unique thing about the amsterdam international airport is that it is more a working farm with runways than anything else. The Dutch are ingenious, hard working folks, experts in hydrology, and are practical folks who got it right on land utilization, being that the dutch have reclaimed thousands of acres from the north sea with dikes and embankments.

Well, now when an engine ingests the local fauna you won't get that "baked chicken" smell... you'll get bacon!

Why permit planting that type of crop so close to such an airport? It’s known that birdlife will come in to feed after cropping.
Will management take note for next time. pigs might fly!!
