March 27, 1977 was particularly the saddest, darkest day in aviation industry. This B-747 was-and will be remembered- as the jet that caused the world`s worst aviation disaster of all time at Los Rodeos, Tenerife, Canary Islands, Spain. PH-BUF is seen in its full glory, 5 years before its tragic fate.

The darkest plane on the airliner.net PH-BUF. I Cannot belive how one of the "Worlds Most Modern Airliners Of It's Time" hit another 747 on the same runway.
Normal 747-200s have 10 windows each side on upper deck but the older ones have 3 on each side on supper deck in case you are confused.

Apart from the very tragic fate of this particular aircraft, this is just a very beautiful picture. It emphasizes the elegant lines of the classic 747 very well. And look at the shiny engine cowlings! Interesting to see these early P&W JT9D engines, as KLM's later 747's all had GE CF6 engines. Last but not least, check out the sky which is, for some reason, typically Dutch!
