Default The end of an era, last flight KLM 747-400

Hi there,

Today marks the end of an era with the last flight of a KLM (pax) 747-400. The PH-BFT City of Tokyo is making her last flight from Mexico city to Amsterdam. No proper farewell, no special livery, no farewell flights and one year too early. All thanks to our new enemy, called corona. The police is warning not to come to the airport as large crowds of people are forbidden. Luckily, we still have the models. Very happy with Inflights announcement for the BFA City of Atlanta in delivery scheme, wich hopefully I can add to my fleet. I hope gemini will do the BFT last flight with the 100 years logo as this will truly mark the end of the 747 at KLM. Enjoy the pics and I hope to see your comments on this topic.

Farewell blue Queen, you will not be forgotten!

Feel the same way. Kind of a anticlimax saying goodbye like this.

Great pics you've made. Once the Inflight is in my collection, I am planning a photoshoot of my 13 747's as well.

The last landing will be in the next 20 minutes or so.

Today could also have been the last flight of an A380 from LUFTHANSA...

They put now all in storage and also confirmed to put them all out of service 🙁

RIP to the Queen.

My memories of the KLM 747 is the 400 with the thick blue cheatline circa 2002.

It is great to see all these models together.

The end of an era but luckily these models will always remind you of the times these aircraft were everywhere around the world.

Very sad for those who made their last landing in the conditions imposed by the coronavirus.

It's unfortunate that they had to go out this way.


I believe Qantas also concluded their 747 operations today as well.

You are correct I posted it here on the forum --> Inflight200 Qantas 747-438ER




A sad day indeed Tom Qantas did nothing either for their last 747 service either. Great line up Tom

I posted this in the 1:1 section but not everyone who reads that.

KLM72Y: "Approach, do you have 30 seconds frequency for us?"

ATC: “KLM72Y, go ahead”

KLM72Y: “Dear spotters at Schiphol, around Amsterdam, at home. From the cockpit of the most beautiful aircraft ever built: the Boeing 747, we would like to thank you for all these years of imagery. Unfortunately, bigger problems around the world, with too many patients in overcrowded hospitals, cast a shadow over this earlier than expected goodbye. That is why we cannot offer you a suitable farewell. With a heavy heart, but counting on your understanding, we want to thank you once again. Stay healthy, goodbye, talk to you soon."
"Thank you approach”

ATC: “you are welcome!”

Very nice words from the pilots! Thank you guys for the comments.
@ StillAir, do you think the A380 will not return in service if this is all over? Even before lufthansa's 747-400??

Sadly no...
The B744‘s of LH are now flying around the world to bring German citizens back home, flying to destinations like Aukland, Quito, Lima, Assencion and so, where they never had been before (the local Spotters will have their highlights of the year).
But according to LH sources the time for the A380 is now at LH over.
Sadly there won’t be also no SIA A380 in FRA anymore (they plan to start an new nonstop service to JFK beginning at the end of the year and to downgrade the FRA-JFK Service to B773, which they now will start earlier).

I was lucky and happy to get PH-BFT in both regular and the Panda livery.

All Lufthansa A380s are now parked along with the whole A346 fleet. Only one 744 and 5 748s are listed as active.

Very sad times.

Hmm I'm still in pain with all these mistakes people are making, KLM will need their Combi's more than they know, they have saved them numerous times even in multiple crisis events.

So I am hoping they will get a wakeup call and reconsider this stupid move.

Nice KLM models there Baerke, I too remade photos of my PH-BFT from JC Wings, might make a thread of it I think.

Here my five KLM B747's , they all have an important family related background.

Boeing 747-406M
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "Wave Livery 2015-Pressent"
PH-BFT "City of Tokyo"
Scale 1:200
JC Wings
------------------------------------
Boeing 747-206B
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "White Top Livery 1971-1982"
PH-BUA "The Mississippi"
Scale 1:200
Inflight 200

Limited Edition 1 of 240pcs

Also this display showing KLM's first & last operational Boeing 747 in one picture, I didn't know this before hand and it seems I got it right per accident


Boeing 747-406M
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "KLM 95 Years Livery 2014"
PH-BFH "City of Hong Kong"
Scale 1:200
JC Wings
------------------------------------
Boeing 747-306M
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "Sky Blue Livery 1984-1995"
PH-BUW "Leonardo Da Vinci"
Scale 1:200
ARD Models UK


Boeing 747-412
Singapore Airlines "Tropical Megatop Livery"
9V-SPL (The one that didn't crash)
Scale 1:200
JC Wings / BBOX Models
---------------------------------
Boeing 747-406M
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines "KLM / Northwest Livery 1990-2010"
PH-BFV "City of Vancouver" "The world is just a click away"
Scale 1:200
Inflight 200


Yeah I know that Singapore's Tropical ain't KLM, it's just how my display is at the moment
Sorry for the inconvenience for that part.

But yea like my parents & sister, I am ex passenger of PH-BUA "The Mississippi" we flew her on January 21, 1980 via this flight plan:
Amsterdam - Dubai - Singapore - Melbourne - Sydney
This was when we moved from The Netherlands to Australia, to start a new life and get away from the Cold War, which was a threat back those days.

My second & third KLM B747 flights was with their first B747-306 in their fleet, the PH-BUU "Sir Frank Whittle", flight plan was:

December 21, 1985:
Sydney - Singapore - Colombo - Amsterdam

January 24, 1986:
Amsterdam - Colombo - Singapore - Sydney

My model is PH-BUW "Leonardo Da Vinci" all because the livery the model has matches the PH-BUU I flew on back then and PH-BUU was out of stock, so this was my best solution from when I got it.
But hey I'm cool with it I do remember seeing PH-BUW as well so for that part all good.

My Father flew with the KLM B747-406M PH-BFH "City of Hong Kong" in Business class for his work back in 2007 from Amsterdam to Fort Lauderdale
and in 2012 two Business Class Retrour flights with the KLM B747-406M PH-BFT "City of Tokyo" from Amsterdam to Philipsburg, he has to inspect an acid incident at their main communications array, he was there for six weeks, PH-BFT's Cargo bay came to good use about 5 containers were used to to transport heavy reconditioneering equipment & Test samples back and forth.

As for the fifth KLM B747 I have well that is kind of a unique past, back in 967, my father was a first class Engineer on the Holland American Line S.S. Averdijk, and in 1967 he sailed to Vancouver two times, and to fill this memory I bought KLm's B747-406M PH--BFV "City of Vancouver" and hence thhe reason why I bought the model.

But anyways as for PH-BFT's departure I was saddened to a huge degree, KLM made a major mistake with this one, hopefully they will see for themselves that the old KLM CEO was right that putting the KLM B747 -406M's out of service wasn't a bright idea, and hereby I am really hoping they will at least spare 2 a 3 of them, so maybe after the crisis this may happen I am hoping for it anyways.

As for PH-BFT here some new pics I did make of the model from JC Wings I do have of it:












Here a song that goes perfectly well for the loss of our KLM & QANTAS B747's.

Above & Beyond - Good For Me (2006)


Here the final landing opf KLM's B747-406M PH-BFT at Schiphol International, Amsterdam, NL by Ernest Gutschik Aviation:


Here a nice compilation of many KLM B747 take off's & landings by Runway Action


Rock on & Fly Safe

Well, it seems that this is not (yet) the end of an ERA.
Most likely KLM will use a couple of 747 Combi aircraft again too supply medical instruments for the health care industrie/workers.


In dutch;
https://www.luchtvaartnieuws.nl/nieu...-weer-van-stal


So we now may need 2 different "last flight" models??

The Queen is not yet defeated! We can safely say that, even though the operating costs are high, the Boeing 747 is an irreplaceable aircraft as a freighter. Even without the nose cargo door.

Just like I thought, the B747-406M is far more useful than any other aircraft type KLM actually has, it's good to see they gained some brains and common sense and decided to keep some of their B747-406M's in service, the old CEO of KLM made a valid point.

Nice find John

The PH-BFT has made it's first flight again, only with cargo on board to Beijing. The other two re introduced combi 747's will follow soon (BFW and BFV) very nice to watch her taking to the skies again with her titles still on her tail and fuselage!

Flying to ICN as we speak. Great to see that. DLH has 5 747s active at the moment, albeit only one is a 744. The other day an A388 was active. Now all parked again.

Was nice to see the footage of the Lufthansa A380 in New Zealand!
