KLM 747 Retirement Info

118.280 but go to departure

Departure is 121.200 Dep tma/west

The final 747 flight is today’s AMS-MEX flight, which will arrive back in AMS tomorrow at around 3:20 p.m.

There isn’t another AMS-MEX flight after today’s departure. I’m assuming it’s temporarily suspended because of low demand.

There’s a good chance they’ll do something special like a low-pass over the airport. PH-BFS’ final flight on March 26 did something like that.

Yeah, I heard it too.

@chuckaule may I know where you live? I live in Den Haag. How long is it going to take for you to go to Schiphol?

PH-BFW from MEX is about to land. Looks like this is the final flight for PH-BFW.

i remember seeing the KLM 747 in SFO one of my first times spotting… beutiful sight!!!

The article @Jan posted said that the government is warning spotters not to go watch the last B747 for the last time as they don’t want a mob forming to increase the risk of getting COVID-19.
