Under the photo it says: "City of Calgary" bound for Hong Kong as KL887 meets Air France 744F, F-GIUD, as AF6723 heading for Paris from Seoul".
You can see the KL 747 alright, but how can you know for certain it's KL's "City of Calgary"?. Same for AF: first: with the AF 747 you have to look very closely to see it's an AF plane, but second: how could you ever know the reg.number of the plane and where it's heading?

I was wondering the same thing. The fact that they're AF and KLM is quite clear, but the registrations are not! I guess one possibility is always that the photographer was listening with his scanner, heard their flight numbers, and then searched to see what registrations were flying those flights that day. Takes a while, but it can be done.
I guess that's what happens in the end, you start thinking about the beginning.
