First Photos Of Zoom's 3th 767 , Ex-KLM

Fri Apr 29, 2005 2:10 am

the first of atleast 2 Ex-KLM birds that will fly for zoom made its first test-flight in its new colours...

PH-BZA was the first 767 for KLM and is delivered on 28 july 1995, so isn't that old yet

here the photos:

Now I understand the ZOOM 763 I saw at Schiphol Airport a few days ago. It's a former KLM bird, will ZOOM only take-over two 763s from KLM? I can hardly wait for the first KLM A332 in August/September.

How come Zoom took a KLM 763, but Martinair, which is part owned by KLM (I think) was having trouble finding a 763 for their fleet?

Maybe because MP was looking for PW powered B767's and or they didnt want a type A door before the wing and another type of door behind the wing, ie they wanted something similar to their B767-300ER fleet.

MP fly's with PW engines, besides they already found a 6th 767 wich will be delivered saturday and will be based at brussel. Besides, those 767's are leased from ILFC if im correct. Not a singel 767 is owned...

The two first ZooM's B767-300ER (C-GZUM, C-GZMM) are two ex-Air France a/c (F-GHGI & F-GHGJ).

When will all of KLM's 763's be phased out by the 332's?

Quoting MauriceB (Thread starter):
Maybe because MP was looking for PW powered B767's and or they didnt want a type A door before the wing and another type of door behind the wing, ie they wanted something similar to their B767-300ER fleet.

All Boeing 767's of KLM were/are leased and as the leasecontracts are expiring, the planes are for the lessor and they will seek a new customer.

Cheers!
