KLM To Offer 'Farewell MD-11' Book

KLM to offer 'Farewell MD-11' book

Also, this pretty much verifies that the MD-11 will end in October quashing all rumours about "into the winter operations"

I would buy this book!
As of Jul 2016 I've flown 192 flights on 43 airplane types with 41 airlines traveling thru 85 airports in 37 countries. I've visited 50 countries with 1 more unique one this year. My greatest achievement was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Oct 2015.

Hopefully more info will become available in the near future and it will not be difficult to acquire.

I don't read dutch (cue: LFutia). Hopefully it's the same sort of format, only in goodbye fashion, as the LH 748 and 380 welcome books. Those books are neat.

Thank you for the shoutout Scotty! I cannot wait for this book to come out! Hopefully I can get it shipped to the US

Why would you not be able to arrange that. If KLM don't send them to the US themselves yu can always get a Dutch spotter to arrange something.

Nothing's been confirmed, but the title of the book is in English so I suppose that would be a strong hint that the book will be English or bi-lingual.
Attamottamotta!

The book is available for pre-order with printing expected around october. It costs 25,11 euro plus 8 euro for delivery within the Netherlands.

http://www.md-11.nl/ (Dutch only)

For deliveries abroad drop a message to info@md-11.nl. The website mentions "that the book is Dutch written", quite surprising considering the title of the book is English!

I have recieved an answer:

" Vanaf 23 juli is het mogelijk om via de website het boek te laten verzenden naar Chicago.
We hebben gekeken naar de voordeligste verzendkosten en voor de USA is dat €26,00, het totaal voor het boek komt dan op €51,11.
Om verzendkosten te besparen is het wellicht een idee om het boek naar een Nederlands adres te verzenden( familie, vrienden) verzendkosten binnen Nederland zijn €8,00, de totaalprijs komt dan op € 33,11.

Als reminder wil ik graag nog aangeven dat het boek geheel in het Nederlands is geschreven."


From 23 July they can send the book to Chicago. Shipping is 26 Euros to the US with total being 51,11 Euros / (roughly 70 USD). It is cheaper to have it mailed to someone in NL as it would only cost 31,11 Euros ( roughly 42 USD) but then you are on your own as to how to get it to the US.

Also a reminder that the book is FULLY written in Dutch.

Hope that helps anyone that has questions.
