“Spotters, don’t come to the last KLM Boeing 747 landing”

Aircraft spotters are called upon not to come to Schiphol on Sunday for the last landing of KLM’s Boeing 747-400. Mayor Marianne Schuurmans of the municipality of Haarlemmermeer is considering closing spotters’ places if people ignore the call, her spokesperson confirms.

KLM already removed the Boeings from the fleet in March as a result of the corona crisis. Many fans then came to watch the final landing, despite a ban due to the corona measures. Several mockers were fined.

In retrospect it was not the last landing, because KLM decided to allow a number of 747s to continue flying for a medical airlift between Amsterdam and China. “The 747 is an iconic aircraft and many people want to see it one more time,” says airplane spotter Max Visser (19) from Utrecht. “The 747 has been in service for KLM for 49 years and is currently the oldest aircraft type in the fleet, but it is no longer efficient enough. It’s a real shame, because everyone knows the 747. Even people who don’t like airplanes can recognize it by the striking “hump”. The plane has two floors and in that hump are the business class passengers. ”

Visser thinks the mayor’s concerns are well-founded. “It is true that a lot of spotters are coming up. I’m going to have a look tomorrow, because I think it’s a shame if I drive forty minutes on Sunday and then get sent away. ”

According to the spokesperson for the mayor, the landing can be followed via a livestream on NH Nieuws on Sunday. The aircraft is expected at Schiphol around 4.30 pm.
