Last commercial flight of PH-BFB ‘City of Bangkok’ – KLM B747-400
The PH-BFB ,a Boeing 747-400 of KLM , made her very last commercial flight due to phasing out.
This 747 was the oldest one in world in active service at the moment.
The PH-BFB got delivered to KLM in 1989 and did fly 134.000 hrs,carried millions of passengers.
And that means this Queen of the Sky made about 36.000 takeoff’s and landings.
Her last flight was to LAX-Los Angeles and back to Amsterdam. KL601-KL602.
Sunday the 25th of November she departed at runway 36L for her last takeoff at Amsterdam Airport. Her nose left the runway at 10.35LT.
Today,monday the 26th, this ‘Grand Lady’ with her majestic appearance, went for a cleared approach runway 36C.
Her main gear touched the tarmac at 9.30LT. Another awesome plane leaving the fleet of KLM.
But…………..the remarkable thing is that she will get her final destination at the opposite of Schiphol Airport.
Corendon bought this 747 and will give her a worthy place located at the garden of Corendon Village Hotel.
AELS bought the 747 of KLM. And Corendon will be the last owner of this aircraft.
First KLM will fly the PH-BFB to rome. She will get the Corendon livery. Once she is back at Amsterdam Airport, KLM will remove the engines and deliver the plane to AELS.
When AELS is ready with their job,removing specific parts,the B747 will get transported to the Corendon Village Hotel.
The last huge job will be performed with the help of Schiphol Airport,AELS and transport company Mammoet.
