... still one of the greatest liveries ever, this combined NWA/KLM DC-10. We should have had more of those!

I like how the photographer chose the Northwest-Klm paint scheme.

Pure nostalgia of the long time marriage between klm and nwa.Ithink the md 11 is going to replaced by the 787-9 or 10.klm mainly operates with boeing for a long time already.

When I lived outside of Detroit several years ago I would see this beauty fly in and out of DTW on several occasions. The livery was reversed on the port side (KLM tail, NW fuselage). Great memories!
