Served almost twenty-five years in active duty. Having entered into service with KLM in 1979, gone through a huge operation in the mid eighties were a –300 spec Stretched Upper Deck [SUD] was added, PH-BUN was retired in December 2003. Now enjoying a well deserved rest, although not really comfortable in this cold winter weather. Every time an aircraft roars by at the adjacent runway, a piece of snow fell of the fuselage.

At the first glance I thought; "What KLM had Special Liveries?!" but then I saw it was snow. well, would be a great paint for there 747s.
then snow falling off the plane everytime anotherone passes by means they want to see her in the air again. some kind of awakening beast or beauty or both.

I was about to say, "Is that a new paint scheme, or does that plane need a new paint job"

This would be a better paint job than KLM's current one? May I say to the British poster that KLM's livery is one of the best paint schemes in the world and beats British Airways' reasonable eurowhite livery on a bad day>? It's true, even a dirty KLM say A330 beats any BA jet for looks. Except for the Concorde when they were still in service, but that has nothing to do with colors.

OH! I thought that is the just a different livery instead of snow. I feel sorry for this beast.

It looks like they got a new livery.
