Last Flight of Captain Arno ‘Slick’ Besselaar @ KLM
Captain Arno ‘Slick’ Besselaar made his last flight due to retirement at KLM.
Together with his ‘Wingwoman’ Lisa Woortman and her father Bart Woortman as ‘Wingmen’ on their way to Bogota-Cartagena.
I (Bokito) operated his final pushback at gate Echo 19. In front of this pushback I got a pushback from stand F3 ,left on taxiway Alpha.
Because of time limit I asked permission to apprach KL741 via taxiway alpha and Alpha 14. This was a real surprise for Arno.
Captain Bart Woortman was his mate at Royal Airforce Netherlands.
KL741 got operated with the B789 Dreamliner reg PHBHG.
Backflight KL745 , Cartagena-Amsterdam, got operated with the PHBHF and final approach/landing on runway 06.
