I just got back from having lunch over by 27L, and just as I was pulling up, low and behold a KLM MD-11 turns into the high speed off 9R. (No rego, too far away.) I can't remember the last time I saw their MD-11 over here. Anyone recall? Anyone know the reason for the sub from the typical 744?

For anyone interested in seeing her leave or tracking:

I know, there's been some shifts within the widebody fleet. The MD11 is also planned 'til the end of this month, replacing the 747-400 on the PBM routes...
