Captain Tom made his final flight due to retirement with KLM.
Flight KL745 with a departure on runway 18Center , operated with B789 Dreamliner PH-BHD.
Tom got assisted by first officer Wouter de Haan and second officer Emma Pier.
Backflight KL749 ,with the B789 PH-BHM got an other story than expected. Sanne Porsius (TWR/APP-supervisor) took control with the talk-in of Tom’s last landing.
They did reserve whole runway 27 ‘Buitenveldertbaan’ for Tom’s last landing. After he landed the aircraft got parked just before exit N4.
Thereafter the complete fleet of followme-cars from Schiphol Airport ( authority officers and marshallers ) included with ‘Special Eventmanager Ron Onclin’ went onto the runway in front
of Tom’s aircraft. Than he got guided across the runway vacating on N5,left on taxiway Alpha , right on Alpha14. Overthere the crashtenders of ‘Fire Brigade Schiphol Airport’ got positioned around stand Echo 17.
When Tom did line up to enter stand Echo 17 he got a marvellous water salute and finished his amazing career at KLM.
