KL 777 Arrival Info, When?

Wed Oct 22, 2003 7:36 am

I was wondering if anyone here has inside information on the arrival date, arrival time (ETA) and possibly the runway which will be used when KLM's first arrives at Schiphol Airport. I heard it will arrive on either October 25th or 26th (this coming weekend). I want to take pictures of KLM's first 777 landing at Schiphol Airport. Is their a ceremony planned, such as a fly-by or at the maintenance hangar? Will the 777 go to the maintenance hangar after arrival or will it be on static display somewhere else at Schiphol Airport? Will there be a water canon salute which was done when KLM Cargo's first 747-406ERF arrived?

Any information is welcome.

Regards A388

OK, here you go:

The first KLM 777 (PH-BQA) will arive in AMS at October 25th...ETA 8:30...so get up early. However in the airline industry everything can change really quick...so this might change. Most likely it will be parked at Schiphol Oost. Since you are Dutch you probably know where to be. Most likely there will be a ceremony as this is a very common thing to do for airlines.

Hope this helps
Good luck

BTW the 2nd 777 (PH-BQB) will probably arive one week later

One of the first 777 routes for KLM will be the JFK-AMS route.
