"The Flying Dutchman"
After a year and a half of restoration, 'The Flying Dutchman', a life-size Douglas DC-3 aircraft, has reached its 'final destination'. The life-size DC-3 aircraft is shining in all its glory on the new runway behind miniature Schiphol in the park. The aircraft is 18 meters long and has a wingspan of 30 meters. Now that the plane has landed, 'The Flying Dutchman' is equipped with the latest technology and a wide range of show techniques on board. In this 6th family attraction, Madurodam offers its visitors a unique, contemporary flight experience: a flight through time and space, which goes beyond flying, and in which the pioneering spirit that makes our country great is central. Watch the video of the spectacular restoration and installation of 'the Flying Dutchman' here.
