First 747 Murdered - Schipol Airport

A 747 was murdered at Schipol airport in Amsterdam in this police photo. This is the chalk outline. Since this was the first 747 to be murdered, it drew a lot of investigators to the scene. Perhaps too many.

So, are there any murder suspects yet?



Don't expect to see me around that much (if at all) -- the contact link should still work, though.

I don't get that photo, what is KLM trying to show? That the 747 can "hold" a lot of cars in its "footprint"?


Is it weird I have a RemoveBeforeFlight pitot cover on my car rear view mirror?

Yeah that picture looks pretty old, so do the cars, so was this taken when the 747 was just entering service?

Pretty cool photo and concept! Nice way to introduce a new aircraft to people. Ohhh those Dutch... always a step ahead of everyone! Very creative.

Now can someone explain this KLM choice to me... those of you who are familiar with KLM or fly KLM as frequently as I do must have heard the song "I believe I can fly" played over the PA system inside the aircraft as passengers are boarding... and I have always wondered. Do I want my airline company to "believe" they can fly or do I really want them to be 110% confident that they do know how to fly. Now what PR dept person decided to play this song at a start of a flight over the PA system?  Wink



The fun of flying... love it !!!

Probably the same person who once worked at KLM's marketing department and decided to use this song in one of KLM's commercials

This looks like a job for Van der Valk. (How many of you remember him?)

PS: The 747 will always have a special place in my heart.

Wow I just had a flashback to the early days of TV here, the scary thing is that I started humming the theme music immediately I read your post!

I don't know about you, but I'd be questioning all those cars if I was the police.

I had completely forgotten Van der Valk ... but now ( thanks to you ) I have the theme tune stuck in my head

26 GlobeTrekker : They also tend to play "One day I'll fly away" by Randi Crawford (also used in a KLM commercial and title used in many KLM ads) and from time to time
27 Post contains images N484ER : AIRBUS did it.
28 Post contains images JohnKrist : Any of those tracks mentioned is far better than playing Tom Petty-Free Falling IMO And agreed, 747 will always have a place in my heart, but A380 ai
29 Keesje : We did a second a few weeks ago, no traces. It´s name was BDXO.
30 StevenG : Sounds like an appropriate song when heavy delays or strikes are expected. When you hear "I believe I can fly" on the PA, you're urged to ask the cap
