Corendon Boeing 747 Has ‘Landed’ in the Hotel’s Garden

Aircraft will be converted into 5D aviation experience for the public

After a five-day mega transport from Amsterdam Airport Schiphol to Badhoevedorp, the Corendon Boeing 747 has arrived in the garden of the Corendon Village Hotel this morning. There the plane will be converted into a 5D-experience about the 747 and the history of aviation later this year.

De Boeing began its last journey from Schiphol Airport on Tuesday night. The dismantled aircraft was placed on a trailer of specialised transport company Mammoet to cover the 12.5 kilometers to the hotel. During that, the aircraft had to cross 17 ditches, highway A9 and one provincial road. The A9 was successfully crossed in the night from Friday to Saturday. In the night from Saturday to Sunday, the transport crossed the Schipholweg after which it was parked backwards into the hotel garden, requiring 57 movements. The spectacular transport attracted worldwide attention and was covered by national en international media.

Heavyweight

The Boeing 747 is the former KLM aircraft ‘City of Bangkok’ that will be given a new final destination in the hotel garden after 30 years of reliable service. The plane is 64 meters wide, 71 meters long and weighs 160 tons. To keep it safe and steady, the aircraft has been lifted on 1.5 meters high steel bases, totalling 15 tons of steel. These are built on heavy concrete slabs, strong enough to carry the enormous weight.

5D experience

De Boeing will be converted into a 5D experience later this year. Visitors will be able to walk on, over or under the plane and visit places that are normally not accessible to the public. They can visit the cargo area where the luggage is loaded, learn about the fuelling of the plane, take a look in the kitchen of the business class and the cockpit on the upper deck. They can even do a wing walk over the thirty-meter-long wings. Visitors also make a journey through the history of aviation. That begins with the ancient human desire to fly and leads them from the first serious flight attempts around 1900 to the development of the Boeing 747. The highlight of the trip is the 5D experience, in which they can experience flying in all its facets. The garden where the Boeing is placed is partly an ecozone, open to hotel guests, and can be used as a festival site.

Fitting and measuring

Corendon founder Atilay Uslu had booked a room in the hotel. Exactly on the spot where – if everything went well – the nose of the Boeing would be placed in front of the window. “When I opened the curtains this morning, I saw her in full glory. I realized that after months of preparation we really succeeded in getting the plane to its final place with a lot of fitting and measuring. That kind of takes your breath away,” he says.

Corendon has expressed its thanks for the cooperation of the municipality of Haarlemmermeer, government agencies, various companies and its own employees, without whom the stunt could never have been successful.

Iconic plane

The transport of the aircraft this weekend coincided with the celebration of the first test flight of the Boeing 747 on February 9th, 1969, exactly fifty years ago. The 747 is an iconic plane and was the largest aircraft in the world until 2007. It could transport 2.5 times more passengers than other conventional types. It was also the first wide body aircraft, with two aisles. Characteristic is also the upper deck, where the cockpit is located. KLM introduced the first Boeing 747 in its fleet in 1971. The ‘City of Bangkok’, which was added to the fleet in 1989, was then baptized by nine Thai monks. After almost thirty years of loyal service, the repainted aircraft now decorates the Corendon hotel garden.

The transport in figures

The last five-day trip of the Boeing was an impressive operation. The plane first had to be transported 8 kilometers over the Schiphol airport area and then another 4.5 kilometers through the fields. Heavy transport specialist Mammoet transported the 160-tons aircraft on a trailer that weighed even more: over 200 tons. The trailer divided the weight of the Boeing over 192 wheels. To make sure the trailer would not sink into the marshy land, a special road was constructed of approximately 2.100 metal road plates weighing 1.500 kilos each. Special bridges were built over the 17 ditches. The trailer was traveling at a speed of 5 kilometers per hour and was controlled remotely by people from Mammoet, who walked beside it. It was powered by two so-called power packs, each with a capacity of 390kW, generating more than 1000 hp. A total of 18 turns had to be taken during transport, of which the first 7 were on the airport.

Quotes

“Immigration has played a vital role in building our country. Thanks to his outstanding experience, the new Vice-Chairperson of the Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 will help enhance public understanding of the experiences of immigrants to Canada.”

—The Honourable Pablo Rodriguez, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Multiculturalism

Quick Facts

The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 enhances public understanding of the experiences of immigrants to Canada, highlights the vital role immigration has played in the building of our country and the contributions of immigrants to Canada’s culture, economy and way of life. It is Canada’s sixth national museum and the only one located in Atlantic Canada. National museums are independent organizations that are part of the Canadian Heritage portfolio.

National museums are governed by the Museums Act, which was passed into law in 1990. Pursuant to the Act, Vice-Chairpersons are appointed by the Minister, with the approval of the Governor in Council.

This appointment was made under the Government of Canada’s new approach to Governor in Council appointments. This approach supports open, transparent and merit-based selection processes that strive for gender parity and reflect Canada’s diversity, to support ministers in making appointment recommendations for positions within their portfolio by providing them with information and referrals.

The new approach requires a selection process for both full-time and part-time positions.

As they become available, all appointment opportunities within the 17 organizations in the Canadian Heritage Portfolio are posted on the Governor-in-Council Appointments website. Interested parties can apply online.

Patriots Super Bowl Heroes Tom Brady, Julian Edelman “Going To Disney World” As Part Of Iconic Disney Super Bowl Tradition

In the jubilant on-field celebration that followed the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl LIII victory on Sunday, quarterback Tom Brady and wide receiver Julian Edelman turned to the cameras and shouted with joy what Patriots players have proclaimed so many times in the past:

“We’re going to Disney World!”

Their pronouncement followed standout performances where Brady threw for 262 yards and Edelman hauled in 10 catches for 141 yards to lead the Patriots to their NFL record-tying sixth Super Bowl crown. With less than 10 minutes left in the game, Brady engineered a five-play, 69-yard touchdown drive, highlighted by a 29-yard strike to All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski that set up the game’s sole touchdown by rookie running back Sony Michel; the Patriots later added a field goal to win the Super Bowl, 13-3. Brady and Edelman’s play anchors a remarkable broadcast achievement: a Disney Parks commercial that is being produced and aired in the immediate hours following the game on network and cable TV.

Brady and Edelman’s visit to Walt Disney World Resort continues a Disney Parks tradition that began in 1987 when quarterback Phil Simms celebrated his team’s Super Bowl win at Walt Disney World Resort. Brady and Edelman will participate in a celebration parade Monday at Magic Kingdom Park before thousands of cheering Patriots fans and park guests lining Main Street, U.S.A.

Monday will mark the fifth time Patriots players have participated in a celebratory parade at Disney Parks following one of their world championship victories. No other NFL team has had a player appear more than four times.
