Simple search for PH-BFN reveals her name is "City of Nairobi".

Hoping this is what you meant.

my bad, I just wanted to know the A/C name. I know her callsign was KL691 from AMS - YZZ.

KLM's "City Of Nairobi" was my first 747-400 flight on July 5, 1993 from DTW-AMS. At the time she was just over 3 months old. What a great aircraft. Here are a few photos I'd like to share.

I wish KLM would operate an AMS flight alongside NW to DTW. Would be great to see one of those blue airplanes at DTW again.

I rode City of Nairobi from JNB to AMS about six months ago. Here she is after arrival on a horribly gray day in AMS:

(click to see bigger, thanks ImageShack)


A decidedly non-A.net quality photo of her, to be sure

Edit: I know some of you guys have great memories of this old bird, but I tell you, she can use an overhaul on the inside. Everything's really tired.
