Last landing for the blue queen

Sadly the KLM 747s have just retired. My last real life landing in a KLM 747 (ph-bfv) was only a few months ago, so smooth that we didn’t even feel the 16 main wheels touching down. It’s sad to see the queen go already but at least we will still be able to see the KLM 747-400F for some time to come :)
Solo @ Amsterdam, final approach runway 18R

And it’s butter, we don’t do greasers here in the Netherlands ;)

It’s sad to see her go. The icon of aviation. Rest easy.

What about the Combi? Will it remain in service or will it be retired too?

I flew in the combi twice (PH-BFW and PH-BFV), strange to step into a 747 with such a small cabin. Sadly it’s being retired too. Only 4 KLM/Martinair cargo 747(ER)F’s remain.

It is sad to see the KLM 747 go. I will miss the go old City of Calgary.

But, not for Flight Sim Community. We can fly it anytime, so it will never be the last!
as long if IF doesn’t delete the livery
