Seen at Schiphol: Airplanes

On 19 September 1916, the ‘Farman’ HF-20 was the first aircraft to land at Schiphol. The craft featured the registration LA-4 (the Aviation Department, or ‘LuchtvaartAfdeling’, of the Dutch army) and was piloted by Lieutenant Roeper Bosch. As the French military biplane rumbled to a halt in a bumpy field, it marked the beginning of 100 years of extraordinary aircraft at Schiphol.
