Notes:

[1600px] A sight that could never be replicated: the downturn in air travel as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic has forced KLM to retire their fleet of B747s in late March 2020 - a year earlier than scheduled. Even though three such 744s have managed to remain in the fleet to serve cargo-only missions to Asia temporarily, PH-BFS has sadly met her fate and was sent to Mojave for decommissioning in late May. She was seen here in better times at stand E9 in HKG, moments from pushback for a longhaul back to AMS as KL888.
