This is PH-BFA (City of Atlanta). She was the first 747-400 KLM bought from Boeing. She flew into retirement on november 7, after 27.5 years of service. KLM is retireing its 747 fleet in the next few years. They will be sorely missed :cry:

Great shot. In a few years most of them will be gone. I've spent many an hour and travelled many a mile on them!

Triples and 787's mainly. The A350 will join the fleet in 2020 to replace the A330's.. There will never be a KLM A380 (would be cool though).
