Orange KLM Boeing 777 lands at Madurodam Airport

Published on : Wednesday, August 3, 2016

Orange KLM Boeing 777The miniature aircraft was unveiled today by up-and-coming hockey talent Sophie Nieboer and former Olympic medallist and KLM pilot Maurits Crucq. The Boeing 777 — which is half-orange and half-blue — was painted to reflect the Netherlands’ pride in its national team (#OranjeBoven). KLM operates the aircraft on regular flights across its network and wherever else it can to promote the Netherlands at special events, such as the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

 

 

So, KLM will operate the aircraft on 23 August for the medallists’ flight from Rio de Janeiro to Amsterdam with Captain Leo Visser — former Olympic skating medallist and pilot — at the helm. Lisa Westerhof is an Olympic sailor and KLM pilot as well. She will serve as ramp marshal for the flight once it touches down on Dutch soil.

 

 

On 4 July of this year, KLM replaced its miniature MD-11 aircraft with a miniature Boeing 787 Dreamliner in Madurodam. In 2014, KLM said goodbye to the last MD‑11 in its fleet and started phasing in its Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
