William Schreuder, KLM 4805 Flight Engineer Disasters Tragedies and Triumphs Biographies

William Schreuder was the Flight Engineer on KLM 4805.  Alarmed when he heard a conversation between the Pan Am crew and Tenerife ground control, he questioned whether the other 747 was off the active runway. The pilot-in-command, and the first officer, assured him that it was.
