One of my most bizarre aviation moments ever. Very low level clouds and ground mist were hanging over Amsterdam airport and especially at rwy 18R it was a thin layer. We were standing at the ramp off highway A-9 where we could here see all the planes coming over but couldn´t see a thing at all. Just when we were about to leave, this KLM T7 came over and ripped open the sky´s completely. The clouds were still curling and twisting two minutes after the plane came over. The runway which we couldn´t see at all, was suddenly visible and we could see a very large and long tunnel this aircraft had created. Afterwards the sky was completely closed again, with a visibility of about 50 to 100 meters. A moment I will never forget!
