Early December this year. Pretty much 1-2 weeks left.
The former KLM aircraft PH-BFR will make its last flight on the 6th of December to Twente Airport. The flight of the Boeing 747-400 will be executed by KLM on behalf of the new owner, APOC Aviation. The aircraft will be disassembled by AELS according to the highest environmental standards. Bad weather might cause the flight to be delayed or rescheduled.
The arrival of the aircraft can be seen from the spotters hill next to the airfield. Please only make use of the designated areas, there is a nature reserve around the airport that needs to be protected. It’s not possible to be on the airport when the aircraft arrives, also not for the media. Visiting the aircraft after arrival and during the disassembly is also not possible.
We ask everybody to send their best picture to firstname.lastname@example.org. The best picture we will reward again with a cut out aircraft window.
Flight number: KL9879
ATC Call sign: KLM747
Model: Boeing 747-400
Aircraft Name: Rio de Janeiro
Age: 23 years, 11 months
