After 30 years and 8 months Captain Roef Dieters got his last flight due to retirement at KLM.
Captain Roef, heading for Kuala Lumpur- Manilla and back Amsterdam, got assisted by 5 ‘Wingmen’.

Flight KL805 , AMS-KUL , stand Echo 17 and runway 24 Siera 7 for departure.
Backflight KL806, KUL-AMS, just arrived before ‘Storm Poly’ fully exploded.
First the flight got planned for runway 22 , but when entering the Dutch border Roef got runway 18R for his last landing.
Happily I was able to reach the runway just in time.
Final stand was F9 and both flights operated with the B789 Dreamliner reg PHBHC
