Amsterdam's Schiphol Airport

My cousin and I went to the airport last week. He worked there as an ambulance driver for 5 years, so he knew how to get to every remote corner of the airport. It was a cool day, here are my pics:

The control tower

This was just bizarre. These are actually a couple of kerosine lines, on publicly accesible land.

There's busses all over the airport. Their main purpose is to move local employees around (like a local bus company does). Schiphol is really big, it has 5 runways and it's Europe's 4th busiest airport.

This is my favorite picture, I like how the sun breaks through the clouds in the middle of the pic.

Exactly 10 years ago I was at this airport and it was undergoing MAJOR construction. I'd like to see inside pictures sometime.
