Color Of Names On KLM Aircraft

Wed Mar 28, 2007 8:40 pm

I know that this has been mentioned before in another thread but I just found the following pictures on the net:

Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 683 File size: 607kb


Big version: Width: 1024 Height: 680 File size: 405kb


What I did not notice before, and what wasn't discussed before, is that the name Roodborstje on the PH-BXV first was in white, like used to be the case on KLM aircraft. Before delivery it was changed to blue. Does anyone knows the reason for this? Thanks!

MH017,

You must be right because here it is a picture of the plane on Schiphol (http://www.planespotters.net/Aviation_Photos/photo.show?id=042489) and guess what, the name is in white again.

you have the order mixed up..
boeing delivered the bxu with a blue name, and tried to do that with the bxv also, but the klm team had them change that before delivery, final delivery was with a white name

I wondered about the same in this topic (reply 15) KLM's First 737NG With Winglets! (by AirplaneFan Mar 6 2007 in Civil Aviation)
but the answer is still not clear to me

LarSPL,

I guess you are right. On planespotter.net you can find pictures of the PH-BXU with a blue name. For example:

Is the Albatros still flying with its blue name?
