Yep, likewise the AF 77W due later today.

Weather was rubbish in AMS when I tried to photograph these birds, and today, I decided against spotting as weather was not favorable    ...gonna ring the met office and complain

So are both of these because of the BA 319 incident earlier?

What an absolute beauty! I so need to get a ride on that bird before it heads for the chopper.

Great pics, thanks.
I do like the sign in the cockpit photo on the Yoke, "Do not remove from aircraft" that made me

What a wonderful set of photos! That was really something. Thanks so much for posting them   Now I need an excuse to fly somewhere with KLM to get on the MD11 one more time. I've only been on the aircraft SIN-BKK-HEL with Finnair - but it was fun!
I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!
