The best scheme tehy could have chosen! And I was on this tandem flight together with a KLM 772! Lots of fog and clouds in the south, but fortunatly good vis in the North of the country. I especially loved the flyby over SPL at the end.

Great livery! The black dot on the nose is a nice touch, making it look even more vintage.

In my opinion, this is my favorite retro paint job that I have seen since the American Airlines 757 and 737. Now when is United going to do an original delivery 747 or stars and bars 777? Kudos to KLM. Awesome paint!!

I like it, yes... but what really is going on in my mind, since it's now been more than 3 years since this one was painted this way: 1 when are they going to change it back to standard (hopefully never:)) 2 what is KLM going to do in 7 years (2019)? For your information, or as a reminder: the K(oninklijke) L(uchtvaart) M(aatschappij) was founded on October 7, 1919. With Mexicana bankrupt (also 1919)... The Flying Dutchman will have the honour of throwing a jubilee party with splendid retro birds like noone has ever seen before... but will they fix something sweet?
Sweet dreams in the meantime...
