No, these were not done yet in 1977.

Just to widen the post, what was the name of the tour operator rep who left PH-BUF at Tenerife rather than flying on to LPA and consequently was the only woman who flew to TFN on PH-BUF to escape death. is she still alive?

I read recently that many of the passengers on PH-BUF were families many with young children. That makes that appalling tradgedy even more sad.

Did you happen to catch the "Seconds from Disaster" show on the Tenerife disaster? I've seen many programs on this accident, but that was the best and most informative yet.

Remember, the only eyewitnesses to the accident were the pilots, as the runway was completely obscured by fog.

I havent seen that programme. I have read quite extensivley on the disaster although considering the scale and enormity of the tradgedy there is not that much information out there.

SFD (Seconds from Disaster) covered the entire accident using CGI, and the results of what happened were spectaular on a tragic scale. The entire time I recall thinking about how many different opportunities both aircraft had to avoid a collision before time ran out and the KLM Capt. spooled up power.

It was on tonight in the UK,

National Geo = 5:00pmGMT
National Geo +1 = 6:00pmGMT

It might be on later, but I don't know.

Furthermore the KLM 747-200s that got the SUD treatment were the GE powered birds. PH-BUF was PW powered.

As said above, NO...! PH-BUF was in fact one of the very early 747's ever built. If I read it right l/n 150.

BUF was also painted with a royal blue top. Some re-enactments show it in it's delivery white top scheme.
