This got front page news on the BBC website today:

Dutch King Willem-Alexander reveals secret flights as co-pilot - BBC News

I'm pleased the King still manages to do something he clearly loves doing and would have been his career choice if he was not to be king!

And in the Guardian as well:

And CNN:

He claims that he is seldom recognized when he wears the KLM uniform and cap. Sometimes people do recognize his voice in the intercom.

Apparently he is looking forward to get his Boeing license as it enables him to fly to different destinations.

"What a fantastic performance of Tom Dumoulin in the final time trial! The first Dutchman to do to win this big bike race and the third Dutchman to win one of the three major cycling tours. A truly amazing achievement! I am particularly proud of his victory in this 100th edition of the Giro d'Italia. "- WA
