A KLM Boeing 737-900, registration PH-BXR performing flight KL-1576 from Athens (Greece) to Amsterdam (Netherlands) with 178 people on board, was on approach to Amsterdam when the crew stopped the descent at 3500 feet reporting a problem with the flaps. The crew subsequently advised they'd need to land without flaps, their landing speed would be 195 KIAS, due to the high speed landing emergency services were requested on standby to check the brakes after landing. The aircraft positioned for an approach to runway 18R and landed safely at a higher than normal speed (about 175 knots over ground). The crew decided to taxi directly to the apron with emergency services in trail.

The aircraft returned to service after about 12 hours on the ground.
