good start :)
Guest 02-May-2015 00:06
thank you for your noce pictures! Pilote seem to be such a wonderfull job!
I went there because of the red light you happen to see in the pacific, very disturbing instead.. I wouldd be really nice if every pilotes has camera and talk more freely about strange thing they see.
Thanks and keep posting!

The design of your "All Galleries" page is beautiful.
Dave Barnes04-Jul-2013 12:15
For me these galleries represent the best of what could be photographed on this planet, we can talk planetary because here you have that perspective - brilliant work, congratulations.
Antonio Carlos Pianaro 06-Apr-2013 23:06
Dear JPC van Heijst , your photos are wonderful. I admire him because, you fly in the most beautiful and fantastic machine that I know. Every Tuesday and Friday night early, you and your colleagues Cargolux land in my city, Curitiba (CWB-SBCT) with the B744. When I can get up very early, at 5:00 am to shoot them at the airport. Most times, I do so the company where I work, where your aircraft is on the prow of Gisa, ha about 5500 feet. I hope someday to photograph their passage here.

I think you should compile these Pictures and Experiences into a Book and DvD. It would be used in schools, family libraries and a good Souvenir for Tourists.

nice work mr flying dutchman ... !!
what an opportunity to fly and then shoot images others will never experience in real time...
thanks for the pilots' view !
Robert 25-May-2011 02:46

Fantastische fotos en zekers de moeite waard om te zien , ben zelf vlieger hier in Atlanta al sinds 1988 en vloog daarvoor in Chad Afrika voor Unicef.

Thanks for your excellent photos. It was a pleasure to see your gallery. I thank you for sharing your life through your photos..........

James Akeem Osho 29-Jun-2010 12:05
The name the flying Dutchman fits you well. I am opportuned to see this great work of photography, but i saw beyound pictures. It inspires the spirituality in me and as a Folk Singer, Children care and Tourist Guide that i am, travelling opened my eyes to see that the whole human race is one. Although our cultures are diverse but that is the beauty of it all.
So glad to know that people like you exist. Sir, i'd like you to use your travel experience to show the similarities in us as members of the human race. We have to help the underpriviledge street children around the world. God bless your Soul sir. I appreciate your Creativity and love for nature.
Peace be upon you my brother,

your pictures are very impressive. I am an old denimair captain and I stumbled on your pictures by accident but I I am impressed here is a clue as to wo I am I was the last captain to fly PH-FZE

Bert de Jong 21-Dec-2009 07:15
AMAZING pictures, a shame of the watermarks but . . understandable. Those images bring back memories big time as I flew for 22 years as a Flight Engineer on the P3 Lockheed Orion. After my "retirement" (50)these days I harass pilots at CAE Center Amsterdam on the B738/739.

I play around with graphics a lot and the Droste effect URL appeared as a new toy, thanks for that.

Happy landings,

valerie 23-Sep-2009 23:49
Dear Mr van Heijst Have just viewed your beautiful aerial view of Afghanistan and I am
just left gasping re the art of your shots and the beauty of that poor, worn torn country.

I am Canadian, and as this art of yours in now on internet, to bash the country and people, it makes me exceedingly sad, that this beauty you have shown us, is beinmg used in this fashion. I have played it again and again andam left gasping with each shot. Love your sense of humour, re T-Shirt/Black eyeglasses.

Pls, what is the melody used to accentuate your slide show. So familiar, so haunting, a wonderful choice. thank you for this piece of art! Valerie

Excellent Photo Galleries.
Just awe inspiring. The cockpit ones, just show how your job can be fun when ever stuck in a chair for the long hours.
No one takes photo's like this (planes close by etc etc).

Definately art (plane art ;) ) at it's finest!
Eugene 14-Dec-2008 23:27

Collegue of yours draw attention to your galleries.
I really enjoyed looking at your pictures which are of very high quality.
Keep up the good work !

Guest 14-Oct-2008 01:23
Exellent work! Great photos showing exactly what its like up there... Still, extreme low level ops are a bit more exciting with actual hands-on flying! Hahaha - can you spot the jealousy? Wel gedaan, een baie goeie gallery!
Jazz Tang 16-Sep-2008 14:36
Great galleries. Fantastic. Your galleries remind me of my dream to be a pilot when I was small. Aeroplanes flow over the place I lived, and I could recognize the type of plane just by the approaching sound before it came into my sight. Unfortunately, being in a small place in Hong Kong, there were little opportunities in our choice of future career. To satisfy the expectation of the people around me, I become a doctor. But my dream career as a pilot, never fade. I bookmark your gallery web site, and watch the wonderful pics everytime I got frustrated with the stuff in my "career".
Guest 06-Sep-2008 08:06
I love your galleries! Excellent photos. I am also a fan of window views and cockpits. I've got several galleries myself.
Guest 17-Aug-2008 01:26
Thank you for your kind comments on my gallery, but thank you even more because with those comments I have had the chance to find you. I have seen your favourites pics but I have to see all the rest, they are absolutely amazing!!! Your photos are a dream to me. Congratulations my friend, I would like to have your work. I have added you in my favourite's list so I will come back often to see new photos! Ok, I'm gonna see more.
Best wishes from Barcelona,

Hey Chris,
bedankt voor de tijd die je hier met ons in het ghetto
van KAIA Afghanistan met ons doorbracht.. Ik vergeet nooit

Jammer dat we niet de mogelijkheid hadden om naar de departure hall
te komen om 'good bye' te zeggen (komt door ons kostuumpje...)
doe vele groeten aan Dick en Corine en lets keep i n touch...
Deze site is een juweeltje.. vele groeten..

I really enjoyed your galleries. I reminded me of my thirties, when I flew as a passenger every week. In those days, you could go into the flight deck if you asked nicely.

Hoi Christiaan, inmiddels weet ik ik dat jij nu 3 weken flink aan het "zwoegen" bent. Heel veel succes daarmee!
Onwijs gave site, prachtige foto's, begrijp nu dat zoom maar een tipje van de sluier oplicht. Ga vooral zo door, zal niet makkelijk zijn, omdat je in de toekomst vaak wat hoger zal zitten, dan met die good old fokker 50.

Hello Flying Dutchman!
This is some of the best "flying" pictures I've ever seen. As a friend of mine mailed back: "This is not pictures. It's G**damn ART!" Took us both back to Afghanistan, where I was lucky enough to hitch a ride on ISAF085K from Kabul to Mazar and back.

Hoi Christiaan,

Als F50 home-cockpit-sim bouwer zijn die foto's van je (vooral die ene die recht onder het overhead naar boven toe getrokken is) ERG handig ! Ik probeer nl aan zo veel mogelijk echte afmetingen te geraken en als je weet dat ieder panel op't overhead (uitzondering van de lights panel uiteraard) 114mm is dan kom je met zulke foto's al een end ver !

Ik zou het erg fijn vinden mocht ik je in m'n msn lijst mogen toevoegen ! Mijn msn is
