Is it the Queen of the Skies or a Flying Dutchman? It’s both.
In 1994, the B747-400M was delivered to KLM with the serial number 27202 and was christened “Rio de Janeiro”. The 747-400M is a combined passenger and cargo version (also known as a “combi”) and was produced just 61 times in this version. After 23 years of faithful service for KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, the PH-BFR embarked on its last journey on December 6, 2017 as flight number KL747.
For fans of Boeing 747 and KLM it has now been preserved as an Aviationtag.
Note: Every tag is unique. Depending on the plane, tags may vary in terms of haptics, material thickness and colour. Small blemishes bear witness to the plane’s long history and are an authentic reminder of its glory days over the clouds.
