Around the time the last Martinair MD-11F departed, KLM also started the phase-out of the 747-400(M) fleet; sta...

Re: Fokker 70 Goodbye Livery

Sad sight on the live stream. PH-KZU just parked and -KZM and -KZM right behind her, directly behind each other departing to Norwich.

Watching the live stream via Chromecast on the big TV while looking around on internet forums and Twitter etc.
