A low flying passenger jet over De Kuip gave football fans quite a fright during the Feyenoord vs FC Twente match on Sunday afternoon. The terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13th left everyone in Europe a little jumpy when attending a football match or other event. But in this case the fear was unfounded - the low flying airplane was KLM's new Dreamliner on its test flight.

"All kinds of thoughts go through your mind when you suddenly see a gigantic plane above a full Kuip!", spectator Jasper van Eldik tweeted.

The scare did not affect the Feyenoord team's performance at least, and they beat FC Twente with a neat 5-0 victory.

So far KLM has not responded on the scare they gave football fans in Rotterdam with their new Boeing 787.
