Hello,

Not much info found at SPL, it started boarding on time (09.49), but further then that, I have know idea. It left the gate at 11.55 and had a long taxi way to the new runway and was air born at 12.15 o'clock... So a little strange why it left so late...

Wow, it spent more than 2 hours at the gate with passengers on board? Hmm, I also look forward to see that KLM 74 at ORD around noon-ish. Hey Leo, what's the 74M? Was that the 742?

Hello,

The registration was the PH-BUM, 747-206M (SUD), a 747 combi, total of max 303 passengers, an old one in KLM's fleet and will disappear within several months, so take a picture I've you can, this one is also with the internet titles... According to the flight schedule it will arrive in AMS 15 minutes earlier....

Goedeavond...
Its a 742 w/ Passenger and Cargo capabilities... I'll be taking KL 612/ KL 871 on 23/24 Oct. I'm off to DEL for a wedding in exactly 1 month... I wonder if i'll be taking a plane w/ a new logo?? I flew on PH-BUN last year when i took KL 871 to DEL.... On the way home I got KL 872/ KL 611 DEL-AMS-ORD on Nov.2 so I'll be doing some major spotting those days....


Thanks for the info... wonder if someone could get more details...
