Remark Photographer
PH-BQP / QP-015 (cn 32721/630) Just rolled out from hangar 14 where it got it's special livery. It's hard to see but this is the special 'Delftblue' livery of KLM. KLM started a promotion called 'Tile & Inspire' where you could make your own 'Delftblue' sticker with a photo from yourself. The chosen have their sticker put on the aircraft. Special thanks to Nathan for help with re-editing.

5 stars for the shot!
0 for this special livery - still dont like it!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat July 16, 2011:
Fifty fifty!I like the idea but from this distance it look likes a blue snakeskin.The normal royal blue is the nr1 winner of all schemes.dont mess with it.

Beautiful aircraft, beautiful airline and beautiful idea with poor outcome.

My face is on here somewhere! I received notification from KLM that my tile was selected! I'm waiting for my confo pic of the tile I created. I was hoping it would be a little more unique, but it is still a great concept and feeling knowing that my face is traveling the globe!

A visitor from - posted Thu June 16, 2011:
The photo is great but the concept of the scheme is a big mistake because from 150 feet or further away it looks like the paint is peeling.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu June 16, 2011:
Great job!

A visitor from United States posted Thu June 16, 2011:
Good pic

A visitor from Portugal posted Thu June 16, 2011:
Looks pretty awesome! Good job KLM!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu June 16, 2011:
Having been involved in the creation of this, I can safely state that it was a requirement to make the livery appear like the standard one from larger distances. And of course we wanted the stickering from nose to tail, but due to time and safety constraints this was not possible. Please don't underestimate the complexity of this job before screaming "total fail" :)

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 15, 2011:
Really great idea, but the stickers just abruptly stop before the front doors and stabilizer. Should have gone from nose to APU exhaust...

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed June 15, 2011:
What a great idea gone horribly wrong! KLM should have perhaps looked at British Airways' Delftblue Daybreak livery for inspiration.

A visitor from Singapore posted Wed June 15, 2011:
I had expectation of a beautiful special livery ... because the idea presented was great. But now, it looks like the plane flew through searing volcanic ash and came away with a tarnished paintwork.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed June 15, 2011:
A better idea was to make the plane with inverted colors. The blue had to be white then. The tail would be blue with white logo. And then they had to put all the tiles on the aircraft. In my opinion better.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 15, 2011:
It's a TRON plane! And it's De-rezzing!

A visitor from - posted Wed June 15, 2011:
I think only a close up photo would have worked. KLM should have opted for a lot less tiles and make them at least the size of a cabin door. Perhaps then they would have stood out more.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed June 15, 2011:
Simply awful...
why did they do that?
the T7 simply looks like it needs to be repainted!

A visitor from - posted Wed June 15, 2011:
The stickers make the plane unique.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed June 15, 2011:
For all the people who say it is done pretty poor, don't forget there are 4000 pictures on this plane and even a 777 has a limited surface area. If you look up close (and those pictures will come!), my guess is that it looks great.

And don't forget this was a huge campaign by KLM to make them huge on the interwebs and social media.

A visitor from Belgium posted Wed June 15, 2011:
Total fail. Sorry.

A visitor from - posted Wed June 15, 2011:
Indeed nice idea, but poorly executed. From a distance it is barely noticeable if not at all.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed June 15, 2011:
My face is on that plane somewhere, too. Try and find the slogan "A good landing is one you can walk away from". Glad to see it 'alive' :-)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed June 15, 2011:
So am i, and my quote :)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Wed June 15, 2011:
Nice idea, poorly executed.

A visitor from - posted Wed June 15, 2011:
Not much wrong with the photo but I thought the tile idea would have come out a bit more spectacular.

A visitor from Germany posted Wed June 15, 2011:
WOW! I'm on that plane! :)
