Dutch flower/tulip fields 2012: seen from the air with Dakota DC3

Welcome to Tulipland 2012! Its is again this colourful (however extremely chilly) time of the spring, when the flower-bulb-area between Leiden and Amsterdam offers tons of different colours...So how about looking down at all this beauty from the air? Today I am taking you with me on board of the Dakota DC 3 (built in 1944 in USA) for a flower-tour in the air!
This trip starting in Schiphol-Oost will take us over the blooming Bollenstreek, the spring garden Keukenhof up to the beach resort Noordwijk, then we will fly over Noordwijkerhout; Sassenheim and Lisse! Enjoy the geometry of the flower fields, the flashy colours of those tulips, daffodils and hyacinths...In my next entry we will visit the same fields from the ground:-))
 
Can you try zo fidn the word "love" in one of the tulip fields on the pic below (I am helping you by saying: reeeed:-):
And last but not least lets have a quick look in the waiting hall&another second look on the fantastic Dakota DC3! A hug thanks goes to the captans& the weather for the sun and blue sky...

Geweldig deze kleuren gezien vanuit een dakota. Ik heb Nederland tijdens mijn verschillende vluchten vaak van boven gezien maar nog nooit tijdens de tulpenbloei. Bedankt voor deze serie. Fijne zondag, Dietmut

I loved "flying" with you, amazing sights, so much vivid colour and the fields are so large considering the are flowers and not crops. Stunning. Looking forward to your next post too. I love tulips.

Very nice pictures Jana!
You can take photographs of the squirrel if you go to the veluwe, entrance Otterlo. Go to the entrance and 150 meters to the left you see a small path on your left. park your car there and walk 150 meters on the sans path. There you will find a bird cabin,where also the squirrel is..take food 4 the squirrel and animals with you;)

(keep this to yourself please)

The colors of tulip fields are so beautiful seen from above and I am sure flying with such an airplane was an amazing experience as well!

I'm looking forward to seeing those tulips in close-up shots real soon! I can only imagine how good it must be to feast your eyes and soul with so much beauty and fragrance...

Best wishes from Brasov, Romania!
