Remark Photographer
PH-KCH / CH-008 (cn 48562/591) Two great ex-KLM tri-holers seen sitting in a corner of Victorville, awaiting their fate as scrap-metal while already being stripped down to pieces for spare parts. The tail and winglet visible to the left belongs to PH-KCI while -KCH has no winglets, doors or engines left. Sad to see these gorgeous jets disappearing so fast.

Very sad pic to see mighty MD-11 like this! On a sidenote - is it Aerosvit 767 in the right lower part of the photo? Going for scrap or waiting another airline to fly for?

A visitor from France posted Fri April 12, 2013:
We all know that it's sad to see but they did their work, it's the best end for them (no fails, no crash...). they will reborn in others planes and everythings who need steel :)

A visitor from United States posted Thu April 11, 2013:
This is very sad, the MD-11 doesn't seem old enough to be already torn apart. Also, the MD-11 is like the icon of KLM to me :)

Byebye beauties, you will be missed...

A visitor from France posted Tue April 9, 2013:
Flew both of these birds on my honeymoon: one into SFO, and one back to AMS. Very odd to capture both of them in the graveyard...

Great pic! I would love to have that winglet on display in my house! I rode these planes many mnany times!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon April 8, 2013:
Almost 7.000 hours on these beauties, so should be about 700 on PH-KCH... brings tears to one's eyes. Thank you Anna!

A visitor from - posted Sun April 7, 2013:
For me, it´s too sad. In this plane I took my first flight ever (CCS-AMS in july 31st 1998). Emotions are strong. How would you feel if, let´s see, the hotel where you spend your honeymoon was demolished? Thank you very much, Anna Pavlova!

A visitor from - posted Sun April 7, 2013:
