Default KLM 100 years

Although I am not a very big fan of special liveries on airliners, I was kinda looking forward to the special 100 years livery on KLM's first B 787-10, to be delivered at the end of June.
A nice retro livery or something entirely different from the current look would have been appropriate for being 100 years in the air under the same name.

I was somewhat disappointed when I saw the outcome yesterday, even though it will still look smart on a 1:200 model.

Will purchase one aswell but really hoped for a nice retro livery on the new 787-10. The 787-10 would have been perfect for the klm livery of the sixties with the blue striped tail. Was really looking forward to a new retro bird from klm...

That will be a great livery ...

KLM will be 100 in October 2019 followed two months later by Avianca.

QANTAS created in November 1920 is the third oldest airline still in operation.

Then we have Aeroflot, Czech Airlines, Finnair and Delta Airlines.

Delta Airlines was founded as Huff Daland Dusters that were renamed as Delta Air Service in 1928.

Well I hope KLM will do this livery on their B747-406M's, the last KLM special livery for their B747, even that the B747 has been around for just over 50 years, that would certainly do their B747s right.
What also would be cool is to see a KLM B747-406M in the same liveery PH-BUA had back in 1971, KLM's White Top livery...

Looking at what KLM did when it turned 95, it appears likely, the 100 years sticker will be put on several different aircraft types in the fleet.

Still I hope you are right with the 747 and they do make a real effort when they send her into retirement with a proper retro look.

From what I know, QANTAS is the third oldest operating airline behind AVIANCA, but the second oldest continuously operating airline because KLM ceased operations during WWII.

Anyone with more information ?

All I know is that QANTAS advertised they were the oldest continuously operated airline. Don't know if AVIANCA ceased operations in WW2 though.

What I know is that KLM flew their European aircraft to the UK, also changing their registrations to G-... and flew some services from there. Some aircraft ended up in the Far East, flying refugees from Indonesia. In 1945 they picked up their regular network activities.

It becomes more complicated reading this article;

My mother and family were in Indonesia and unfortunately interned in a Jap prison camp for the duration of the war. After the war they flew KLM home.

I don't believe they have had a single fatality? If this is accurate, amazing considering how long they have been around.

JP is correct Qantas is the third oldest airline. Qantas did not cease operations during WWII with aircraft that were not on secondment by the Australian government for the RAAF.

No fatalities David. That is sadly not a proud thing to bring to the forefront but it's true. Qantas has won worlds safest airline many times.

I didn't mean to offend anyone by pointing this out. They take maintenance and operations very seriously. One thing I remember a mechanic telling me at work. After each flight, they want each fuel tank dripped for water. In Vancouver's case, it was just done 5 hours earlier in Honolulu. Not likely any water, but it doesn't matter, do it again. They also had straps, I guess you would call them? One end would attach to a fan blade, the other end hooked to the front of the nose cowl. The old 747 engines fans had a tendency to spin in surface winds. Qantas wanted that prevented, as it could cause damage. Just 2 things I have seen first hand, how seriously they take day to day operations.

I still hope there will be an unexpected surprise on at least one airframe at or around October 7th, the actual anniversary date, but I won't hold my breath.
