Hello everyone,

Well looks like the 11th AF's B773ER is also the the first AF aircraft to wear the AF-KLM logo on the fuselage... Cant' see it really on this picture but is the Seahorse logo is now on the engines ?

Hmm kinda interesting. This is also just a great shot in general.

I haven't been following this whole merger or what even it it between KLM/AF is the KLM logo going to be gone? or Are we still going to have the Lovely blue aircraft flying for years to come? Also what does this mean to the KLM/NW partnership?



Where will you spend eternity? He,s more real then you think!!!!!

Saw a lot of this plane while it was at Everett and can say for sure that it does have the seahorse prominently displayed on both engines.


If it was said by us, then it must be true.

I hope not KLM is one if not the oldest airline still flying.

Thanks Clickhappy !
I like the AF seahorse logo but I am a bit disappointed by their size on the engines ... looks a bit too small and too low, IMO.

Not sure, was told it was owned by the Museum of Flight, but they deny this, it has been sitting there for ages, along with a derilict Aero Commander, which is finally being broken up.

I was going to suggest that it belonged to the MOF as well, but they already have one on display.

Thanks for the info

Been doing some interplanetary touring, perhaps?

What a pretty bird...Can't wait to see it once Air France allows it to go unwashed for a while!!

I hope the pretty blue of KLM doesn't fade away. It would be a shame to see an airline with so much history and pride fade away.

BTW, long time reader, first time poster, cheers to all!!
